A day on the Itchen at Abbots Worthy August 2011

I had the opportunity to fish the famous Itchen at Abbots Worthy on the 28th August.
It’s a beautiful beat owned by Orvis. There were three of us in total and the fishing was tough, something I had been forewarned about.

We fishing nymphs for most of the day as the fish weren’t looking to the surface.
I managed to catch 3 Grayling and 7 browns, one of my friends caught 1 Grayling the other 3 Grayling and 4 Browns.

It was a fantastic sunny day, filled with great company, good food and wine, with some memorable fishing on a gorgeous stretch of the Itchen.
