Upstream Dry Fly

Dry Fly Fishing


We have the jewel in the crown of the lower river Test. Exclusive letting of the famous Testwood Pool and Testwood beat. A historic and world renowned salmon and seatrout beat fished during the day where one can sight fish for salmon and sea trout in the clear chalkstream water. Also fished as a seperate beat at night for sea trout. Challenge yourselves to the Testwood grand slam and catch a salmon, sea troput and brownie in a day! Where else can you do that!? Please contact Howard for booking details.
