Hi all,
I spent this weekend walking around the river Test first in Stockbridge and then upstream from Whitchurch and boy it was a lot to look at. Mayfly hatch was going on on Sat pm and the fish were simply massive. No surprise this is called the Mecca of fly fishing. The water was calm and the trouts both browns and rainbows were just cruising and taking flies...

Upstream around Whitechurch the fish were a bit smaller but and no hatch but still fish were taking other stuff from the top.

What was more interesting, in 10h of waking we haven’t seen a single fisherman! Were were they?

Few pics below.

Anyway I was wondering if anyone has any recommendation for a reasonably (100-150) priced best for next Friday. Please let me know if you have any tips. Thank you
Adam

You could ask in one of the tackle shops in Stockbridge but the chances of getting on a beat at this time of year at any price are remote , normally fully booked months in advance.
