Put To The Test

Rae Borras pays his dues to the most quintessential of all British Chalk Streams, Hampshire’s River Test, in this special episode of The Game Fishers Diary. Widely regarded as the cultural home of fly fishing as we know it, the Test to this day offers the best river fishing for Brown Trout in the country. The filtration qualities of the chalk beds make for gin-clear water, abundance of aquatic life, and idealistic Trout fishing. Rae begins by paying tribute to the three wise men of the sport; Halford, Skues and Sawyer, before putting their respective techniques to work on some pristine chalk stream brownies. A day on this river should be considered a pilgrimage for every serious British fly fisher.
