Ladies Day on the River Test

Hi ladies,

I’ve been contacted by Orvis Guide Gilly Bate who will be holding a ladies day on the famous Hampshire chalk stream the River Test on the 10th April.  The course is run by Gilly and Ellie Ervine and named ‘New Tactics for the Season’.

Gilly has been fly fishing for about 15 years. She started out by following her husband to the river bank and then by accompanying their two sons fishing. She is involved with the local Salmon & Trout Association and has helped out on a volunteer basis for a number of years, organising Ladies’ days and helping with the children’s days. Finally persuaded to qualify as an GAIA Instructor and as they say the rest is history.

Gilly’s site is full of interesting information and photos. If you would like to join Gilly fishing on the famous River Test she can be contacted on 07817 304232 or or visit her website

I have included Gilly to the list of recommended Instructors.

Ladies check out the Orvis website as they have some female fishing clothing in their sale. From shirts at £29.00 and waders from £139.99
