Broadlands Grayling Gathering 2022

Bid to be 1 of 10 people fishing at Broadlands on Thursday 27th October 2022.

Broadlands is world renowned as one of the most famous names in fishing. We are delighted to announce that due to a generous donation from Chalkstream Fishing Ltd, we are able to offer tickets for 10 lucky winners to chase ‘The Lady of the Stream’ on Thursday 27th October 2022.

The fishing on this private estate on the River Test is one of the longest continuous stretches of prime chalk stream fishing still in a single ownership. Taking in the main River Test, the carriers and the River Blackwater, this represents nearly 10 miles of river bank, and is justifiably renowned for the quality of its fishing.

The Broadlands Coarse Syndicate is a small personal affair with a very limited number of rods available per season. Visitors to Broadlands can expect Grayling in excess of 3lbs, Roach over the magic 2lbs and Chub in excess of 5lbs throughout the winter season.

The event is open to both game anglers and coarse anglers and it is entirely up to you whether you fly fish or trot a float.

Our 10 winners will be joined on the day by Charles Jardine, expert fly fisherman, illustrator and Angling Trust Ambassador, alongside our Head of Campaigns Martin Salter and CEO Jamie Cook. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day with a group barbeque in the afternoon so everyone can meet up and swap stories.

Kindly donated by Neil Freeman and the team at Chalkstream Fishing Ltd, this will be a memorable day for our 10 highest bidders.

If you would like a chance to be involved, simply place a bid. All bidding is sealed and the 10 highest bidders will win a ticket for the event. You can bid more than once but your highest bid will be the one taken as the auction finishes.  Visit to find out more.
