Kimbridge beat on the River Test, situated 10-15 minutes from Stockbridge and Andover.

Family Days On The River Test

A great day for the whole family which can be enjoyed by all whether you have had any previous angling experience. You will have exclusive use of a private beat on the River Test, or if you wish a local Stillwater, and an experienced member of the Orvis angling team will be on hand to offer advice and assistance in catching a trout on the fly. The emphasis is on having a fun day and consequently we fully recognise the need for flexibility so we can incorporate other activities such as a bug hunt with a close up look at some of the life that lives in the river. All fishing equipment is provided.


Date: By arrangement

Price: £550 for two adults and two children (£70 for an extra child option)
