One day for 1 rod, wild brown trout fishing on the River Rea in Shropshire. This is a chance to fish the Shakenhurst Syndicate’s 3 mile stretch of this un-stocked wild trout stream accompanied by one of its members, Ollie Banks. Tucked away deep in the Shropshire countryside near Neen Sollars, the 3 mile stretch of water meanders through woods and fields and offers fantastic sport for stunning wild brownies of up to 1.5lbs, both on dry flies and nymphs. Un-manicured and with all the fishing requiring wading (no bank fishing), Ollie will be your host for the day and will help point out the likely spots and how to access them. Ollie will also provide a BBQ lunch at the fishing hut before heading out again for the afternoon and evening rise. Chest waders required as there is the odd deep hole and rods between 6’6 and 8’6 3-5 weight will be fine (rods can be provided). There is lots of interesting casting under trees to be done.
