Taking Care of the Chalk Streams

England's chalk streams are under constant threat from pollution, abstraction and numerous other factors.

The hard work performed by volunteers, like the river keepers of the Portsmouth Services Fly Fishing Association, helps to preserve a delicate balance on rivers like the Meon and Itchen, which run through the county where fly fishing was born - Hampshire.

This film shows some of the work carried out by entomologist Dr.Cyril Bennett, and the pioneering 'Riverfly' partnership, to monitor what lives in the thriving Meon, on a stretch of water fished by members of the PSFFA.

Hope you enjoy the film.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
