The chalk streams of Southern England are well known as the cradle of modern fly fishing. The reason why these rivers have always enthralled the fly fisher is not so well understood it is due to the nerve-tingling excitement of casting at large, wary trout in crystal clear water. That is how the artificial dry fly and nymph came to be developed here in the 19th century and although modern technology has improved our equipment, the methods and tactics we use today are essentially the same. Feeding trout are individually stalked with an imitative fly cast delicately and accurately upstream. You will rarely catch a chalk stream trout by accident each one presents a unique sporting challenge.
