In the footsteps of giants: adventures in chalk and limestone history

Flyfishing history has truly been written on England’s chalk streams and limestone rivers, and it’s impossible to fish these waters without feeling that you’re exploring in the footsteps of giants.

From Charles Cotton’s haunts on the River Dove, to Halford’s water at Mottisfont, Plunket Green’s Bourne Rivulet and even the Wilderness fishery on the Kennet where Neil Patterson fished with John Goddard, Peter Lapsley and Brian Clarke – take your pick of historic waters in this year’s Wild Trout Trust Auction.

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