One day for 2 rods on a highly exclusive beat of the Upper Test between Wherwell and Newton Stacey. This private ½ mile beat has not previously been available at any price and is only fished by the owners and their guests. Some trout are stocked and the beat holds a significant head of wild trout and grayling. The water is varied with fast, shallow gravel sections and deeper pools. The day includes the services of Bill Latham, founder member of the WTT, ex-England International and professional guide on chalkstreams for more than 18 years. A picnic lunch is also provided along with Sage premium equipment if required. The upper section of this beat was extensively restored during the winter of 201617 improving the wild trout habitat with pool and riffle sequences. One bank in this section was also designed to give safe wheelchair access. Date by arrangement after the first weedcut (mid June), 2019.
