My other, equally wonderful club is the Wilton Fly Fishing Club in Wiltshire, which has 10 miles of the Wylye, a chalk stream tributary of the Hampshire Avon.  Like the Cressbrook and Litton, we have a come-any-day basis for membership. We don't have a website, but we do sometimes have vacancies, we maintain a short waiting list, and since I'm the President you could if you were interested use the Contact form on this website to send a message to me -- I'd put you in touch with Mike Tebbs our Hon. Secretary. We have a really interesting and informative folio about the club and its fishing in pdf for those with a keen and practicable interest in joining. The history of the club has recently been published by John Knott of our Committee and is available at Medlar Books:-
