“I’ve been extremely fortunate over the years to have the opportunity to fish on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Test, and it’s been the ideal place to take both friends and clients.”

“With Robin Elwes, a close friend and fishing instructor at Farlows, at hand to give lessons to novices and advice to those of greater experience, in addition to providing a magnificent lunch/BBQ (with meat from the local family butcher John Robinson,) it ensures that the day will be memorable for everyone there.”


a-great-day-out-with-robin-elwes-i“We have had two very successful client days with Robin on the River Test, once in prime Mayfly time and the other a blustery January Grayling session.

Robin’s guiding and instruction was as ever impeccable, as was the steak provided for lunch by the local butcher.”

“We had a real mixture of personalities and piscatorial abilities on both days, all of whom thoroughly enjoyed the experience. There was freedom with select guiding for the more experienced all the way to ‘ABC’ casting basics for the beginners in the group.

The tackle provided was of high quality and both events were very successful… we will be back!”


another-brilliant-day-out-with-robin-elwes-i“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday. I think it rivals watching Chelsea win the FA Cup at Wembley as the best day I have had this year!

But on behalf of all of us, thank you. It was great day which everyone enjoyed immensely.”
