I can't do 15th either (Work commitments Plus I'm down there the previous week as well). Later Feb/1st week of March would be better...

I'm working the 15th, but a day off shouldn't be much of a problem, one question - how much bank is there at lower Itchen? are we going to have enough room for 20 anglers, all presumably long-trotting ?

No problem with numbers of anglers, this is a big stretch, with plenty of features.
They offered the 15th, but I could go back and ask for another date. What about the weekend - say Saturday 19th ?
If we can get an idea of numbers, and availability I'll speak with them. If we only manage 5 or 6 then we could go anytime. It would be nice if we had a dozen plus and had the river to ourselves though, don't you think.

I wouldn't mind have a go but for fly fishing I am rubbish (can't even cast a fly) :( or can I use normal coarse fishing tactic? :(

But just thought the 15th is in mid week but I am committed to overtime at work :o so I wouldn't mind if it was the 19th :D

Andrew, It's coarse fishing - excellent trotting for grayling. Also chub, pike, carp, etc.
This is a lovely stretch with great access.

Great news on the coarse fishing. :) :) Darrell what weight/sizes does the pike runs into? But wouldn't mind having a go for the grayling :D as well!

I have a brand new fly rod, reel, floating line, sinking line etc. and I have never been fly fishing!!
If I am allowed down by you guys, I'll bring fly and coarse rods and tackle with me!


fishing is nature's medical prescription

I can do 15th or 19th, Sat 19th being slightly easier as it won't cost me for the childminder ;-)
