River Pike Fishing Course

A rare opportunity to spend a day on two of the UK?s finest river pike beats in the company of acclaimed writer, guide and multi?capped England international, Ben Bangham.

The Venues

River Avon, Hampshire

A stunning private beat of the Hampshire Avon at Lower Woodford, upstream of Salisbury, that is only fished a handful of times a year for pike, this really is a unique opportunity to get on this lovely stretch of water.

The beat has good numbers of pike with lots of upper teen specimens and a few over 20lb also present. These are fit and powerful beasts, aerial battles are commonplace and it?s a great place to hone your river skills and get to grips with pike fishing on flowing waters.

River Kennet, Berkshire

To be fished on the famous Craven Estate, a great section of the Kennet, which is known for the quality of its pike fishing with large, fit and well?fed fish that feast on the huge head of coarse fish present.

Pike up to 25lb have already been landed this season, with a large number of back up fish in the teens too. If you are looking for that elusive 20lb river pike, this is a great venue to be on!
