Chalkstream adventures that money can’t (usually) buy

Anglers travel from all over the world to fish England’s chalk streams – and with very good reason. But there are some beats, especially on the celebrated Test and Itchen, where even the best guides and booking services can’t get access. 

The Wild Trout Trust is immensely grateful to the owners of some of these beats for making them available for our charity auction, the single most important fundraising event of our year. We’re very privileged to be able to offer them as auction lots for one-off adventures that money truly can’t buy.

This year, our very desirable chalk stream lots include beats on the Test, Itchen, Dever, Anton, Kennet, Lambourn, Alre, Enbourne, Meon, Avon, Bourne Rivulet and Candover Brook.

Time to start planning your season of adventures, inspired by the WTT’s auction. 8 – 17 March, on eBay and by post.
