England has some superb fishing venues, not just on the world renowned chalk streams of Hampshire but throughout the length of the country. Sadly salmon fishing in the south and south west of England has taken a hammering from the Irish drift nets in the last few decades but with the recent good news that the nets will no longer operate the once great salmon rivers; Wye, Test, Itchen and Avon and many more should see a recovery over time.

Trout fishing in England went from strength to strength as more and more large lakes were opened in the 20th century, Keilder being the biggest and latest addition, some of which, Chew, Blagdon, (yes its the oldest trout fishery in Britain if you discount Loch Leven), Rutland, Bewl and so on offer the best angling you can hope for just about anywhere.

I hope this directory will guide you to some great days fishing.

Please remember that you must have a rod license to fish in England and Wales and on the Border Esk in Scotland which is designated an English River with some exceptions in Northumberland covered by the Scottish regulations for the Tweed river system.
