East Lodge Fly-Fishing
Amongst the wildlife of the unspoilt water meadows in this idyllic part of Hampshire, just south of Twyford, the angler will find East Lodge. This is one of the most exacting beats on the River Itchen.
Since the 17th century this stretch of chalkstream has indulged the passion of anglers. Nowadays it is protected, both as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and also as a Special Area of Conservation. Today we combine the traditional approach to fly-fishing with the modern facilities that corporate entertainment demands.
We have approximately 2 miles of double bank fishing and can comfortable accommodate 10 anglers at a time. Part of the beat is lined with trees as the river meanders through ancient woods. Other parts bend through water meadows. The two combine to give varied and interesting settings and offer different challenges to the angler.
Fishing East Lodge
Our corporate days include lunch, fine wine/champagne combined with some of the best fly-fishing. This is your day so we can structure the day around you
When the beat is otherwise unbooked we are happy to take individual rods for the day. In this case we prefer if groups are a minimum of 2 people. Catering/equipment not included.
We have two syndicates made up of 5 rods each who fish the beat throughout the season. They fish Mondays and Wednesdays meaning these days are not available to hire. currently fully subscribed.
What our visitors say:
” I have had many happy days at East Lodge, not only as an individual fisherman but also as part of a days entertainment. We have always been extremely well looked after. There is a good variety of fishing and it seems that those involved are constantly striving to improve things where possible.”

” There is no other place on the chalkstreams that even comes close to East Lodge. The setting & scenery is beautiful, the food provided by the East Lodge team is always 5* and the fishing is always incredibly enjoyable. The new lodge has a very personal feel and is perfect for corporate days ”
