Fly fishing on the River Avon

The River Avon

A famous river very close to Stonehenge

The River Avon is the five main English chalk stream rivers - the Test, Itchen, Kennet, Wylye and Avon. It is easy to get to from London either by car or by train and flows down to the superb ancient city of Salisbury. The M3 motorway and A303 dual-carriageway take you south westward from London to within five minutes drive of the river. Also fast trains connect London Waterloo station with Salisbury and our guide would collect you from there if you'd rather take a train than drive out. Although only 80 miles from central London it is a very different - quaint and ancient English countryside - world.

The Wiltshire Avon is a fairly narrow, clear, mostly shallow river containing wild and stocked Brown Trout and wild Grayling. It is often possible to see the fish you are trying to catch which makes for very exciting fishing. It has a rich food supply for the fish with a superb Mayfly hatch in most seasons.

Go Fly Fishing UK do guided days and fly fishing tuition days on the River Avon. Our Chalk Streams River Avon web page contains more detail on what to expect when taking a day on this river, tackle, tactics, prices, etc. Our Trout season guided days cost from £300, depending on the date and the number of people fishing, and £209 in the November to mid-March Grayling season. Contact us for a specific quote for your required date and number of people. Note that we do not provide just day rod beat access to fish without a guide/instructor.
