The best known tributary of the River Avon, the Wylye has been a favourite haunt of the great names of flyfishing, including Halford and Skues, who caught his very last trout here, on a fly tied with feathers given to him by Theodore Gordon, the father of American dry fly fishing. Oliver Kite, who popularised (and some say ‘stole’) Frank Sawyer’s Pheasant Tail Nymph, managed and fished one of the two Wylye beats we let, and it features in his book Nymph Fishing in Practice. Beautiful water, good hatches of fly and free-rising fish are features of this pretty river.
