‘The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.’ -John Buchan
The Leckford Estate was purchased by naturalist John Spedan Lewis as his private estate, and in the 1940s he established seven acres of garden including a world-class water garden and two and a half acres of lakes, which are fed by the River Test. A maze of interconnecting islands and woodland glades combine to create a different vista at every turn. A morning of one-on-one tuition by Orvis's world-class Ghillies will be followed by a lakeside lunch provided by Waitrose Catering. More fishing will follow after lunch. The Orvis Ladies' Fly-fishing Club is a community of dynamic, like-minded women who enjoy the countryside.
Lunchtime conversation at the last Orvis Ladies' Fly-fishing Club Day covered balancing family and career, wedding disasters, recipes for smoked fish, and tales of the ones that got away.
