Vintage fly fishing days at Meon Springs
The Vintage Fly Fishing Day at Meon Springs is a chance for anglers to experience life from a bygone era. Instead of modern carbon fibre rods, anglers can dig out an old split cane rod, dust off a few flies and head to the water with a sturdy wicker creel.
the event is held each autumn and attracts anglers who are keen to indulge their passion for the sport - but at a slower pace. One of the differences between using a split cane rod compared to a modern rod is the weight. Cane rods tend to be heavier - and you've got to slow down your casting somewhat.
Fly fishing is great any time of the year. But on an autumn day such as this, there can be nothing better.
