    I went with my son (21) for four days fishing with Famous Fishing. Our guide Nick was fantastic, always positive, smiling and very, very helpful! He is also a river keeper and as such very knowledgable on the smallest details in and around the rivers and its fish. We caught a lot more big fish then we anticipated. We were on the Anton, Avon and Lambour rivers which were all beautiful and a nice mix in Chalkstream experience. We staid at the Peat Spade Inn which was also great.

    I initially contacted Famous Fishing because I wanted to fish the Bourne Rivulet (because of "Where the Bright Waters Meet") and FF has the Bourne available. I added two more days and had one day on the Lambourne in Berkshire and the third on the Fullerton Beat of the Test/Anton. The arrangements were made via email and everything worked out perfectly. I was contacted by my guide, Nick Lawrence, just after I arrived at the Peat Spade Inn, which has an arrangement with FF for accommodations. My three days fishing with Nick were excellent despite a vicious wind and occasional pouring rain on day 1. The fish were there, in great shape for so early in the season and Nick was the perfect guide. Patient and full of great information, advice and with, thankfully, a large supply of the currently successful flies. I would also add that the Peat Spade Inn is a gem. Great staff, great food and accommodations. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Famous Fishing, William Daniel and his staff. On top of that the Test River valley in early May is outright beautiful in every way. Robert Bishop

    Every fly fisherman should experience the English chalk streams at least once. The rivers Test, Itchen, Kennet, Avon, etc. are not just beautiful, they are deeply historic places for our sport. The problem is that these rivers are privately controlled, tucked away from public view, and nearly impossible to access on your own. This is where William Daniel's Famous Fishing comes in. I have used William's booking/outfitting services many times over the past 20 years. He is totally professional and so are his guides. He can advise about the fishing, transportation, where to stay, where to eat, where to buy a license, tackle, etc. In short, everything necessary to make for a stress-free and successful trip. Fly fishing the chalk streams is a rare privilege and Famous Fishing is almost certainly the best bet for a visiting angler to enjoy that privilege.\r\n\r\nI cannot even begin understand how someone would find the chalk stream water meadows anything but gorgeous and, of course, all the services are first rate which is why I have continued to use Famous Fishing all these years and and recommend it to friends.

    I've taken fishing over a number of years through FF, who provide top beats on well known rivers or, more to my taste, fishing for wild trout on pretty and historic streams. I've also been on a number of corporate style days where they have organised food and wine (not usually my thing) which I must say were outstanding. As the reviewer above says it's worth a proper chat with William or Bill to make sure you are clear on the experience you want. William is genuinely concerned he only sells quality fishing, which is why I'm a repeat client.

    Für einen Freund suchte ich ein passendes Geschenk. Es sollten die besten Chalk Streams in United kingdom sein. Über das Internet kam ich in Kontakt zu William Daniel von Famous Fishing. Mit viel Geduld und Engagement stellte er uns einige Tage Flyfishing am Test, Itchen, Avon und Bourne zusammen. Es war für uns ein Erlebnis. Jeder Fliegenfischer weiß was es bedeutet, zur Zeit der Mayfly an diesen Flüssen zu fischen. Genauso wichtig ist, dass alles passt. Die Gastfreundschaft, die Guides und das Bemühen der Guides, den Gast an die besten Plätze zu führen. Und dann das einmalige Erlebnis, wenn die Forelle -nach unzähligem Wechseln der Fliege- endlich aufsteigt und die Fliege nimmt. Hier stimmt einfach alles. Wir waren mittlerweile das 3. Mal bei William Daniel. Immer wieder und gerne Famous Fishing.

    Famous Fishing, offer both guided, Day lets and corporate days on some of the finest waters in the South. Pricey; but excellent. Some stretches (beats) can be a little manicured, but a good conversation with either Willian Daniel or Bill Latham, giving them specifics about your requirements, should secure some fine fly fishing. but be honest as to your abilities.
