About this property

  • Abbots Worthy Fishery is an extremely picturesque beat on this world renowned chalk stream, The River Itchen. The fishery has been in the same family since 1969 but more recently has been let and is set within approximately 33 acres of attractive water meadows, a haven for wildlife and an important ecological environment.

    The fishery has been maintained to a high standard by the tenant and as a result the fishing is absolutely first class with excellent fly water and opportunities to stalk fish. There is a mixture of double and single bank fishing on the Main River as well as carrier streams which should suit all levels of ability with the aquatic fly life providing plenty of hatches including Iron Blue and Large Dark Olive, and Mayflies. There is a good head of wild trout as the beat is not stocked and superb grayling fishing.
