Top Ten Trout Streams in the United Kingdom
The Itchen is just a back-cast away from the Test and nearly as famous. This is the water where G.E.M. Skues developed the world's first artificial nymphs. It is somewhat smaller than the Test and, in the main, its fishing is more demanding at any time of the day or season, though the same tactical approaches and flies prevail. Its upper reaches are virtually inaccessible to the visitor, but day rods—generally somewhat less expensive than those on the Test—can be had most days. Good base: Winchester.
