Fly fishing at Longparish Estate is a truly wonderful experience. Fly Odyssey has access to several stretches of private estate water at this most famous chalk stream fishing location.

The gin clear water flows over waving beds of ranunculus and gravel holding wary Brown Trout and Grayling.

The estate has approximately three quarters of a mile of fast riffles and slow runs and you won’t be disappointed in either the fishing or the location.

The fishing is spread out around the estate allowing you plenty of time for solitude and an array of possibilities on the different sections for your special day.

The estate offers days for a minimum of five rods and has a charming fishing lodge perfect for corporate entertaining.
