Salmon Guided Days – Chalkstream Fly Fishing

The River Test offers unique sight fishing for salmon

The River Test needs little introduction as a fly fishing river, the chalkstream offers fantastic clear water dry fly fishing throughout the season. Throughout the river’s history the section of river from Romsey to the sea has always been considered a great place to target salmon.

Sight Fishing for English Atlantic Salmon

Primarily the River Test is known as a trout fishery but at Broadlands and Testwood before the river spills into the Solent double figure salmon and sea trout are caught regularly. It is this section of river downstream of Romsey where it is possible to target salmon with a fly.

The added joy is the clear water in which they can be spotted and cast to, whilst they may not always take the fly part of the thrill is seeing the way they charge towards your offering. With the peak runs turning up through the summer months the mid to late season can be a great time to join one of our guided days for an English Atlantic salmon.

Our experienced guide team are well equipped to show you the dark arts of luring salmon to take a fly in the crystal clear water.
