Formed by a group of fishing friends, The Wilton Club, began in 1876, and for the first fourteen years it was located on the River Kennet. However in 1890, the Club secured several miles of double bank fishing on the River Wylye, upstream from Wilton, in the Wylye Valley, passing upstream through Great Wishford towards Warminster.
Since then, The Wilton Club has always been synonymous with top quality fly fishing for wild brown trout. The Club is proud to have had an unbroken line of first class full time River Keepers, who have all been resident on the river, in order to better manage and improve this premier wild brown trout and grayling river.
In more recent years the River Till, an upper tributary has been added to the Club's water. The River Till, is a narrower, more sinuous chalkstream which offers challenging fly fishing of the type that will be much preferred by those in pursuit of specimen wild trout and grayling.
Along the River Wylye, there are ‘carriers’ – narrow streams that have split off from the main river through 'hatches' from where they meander for several hundred yards through ancient water meadows and copses before re-joining the main river a few hundred yards downstream. Again, these 'carriers' are the haunts of specimen but quite spooky wild brown trout.
The Wilton Club is unique in being able to offer several miles of quite varied classical chalk stream dry fly trout fishing that is both challenging and stimulating to its members; our fishing wouldn't be suitable for beginners or the inexperienced.
To this day we remain a welcoming group of fishing friends focused on providing and enjoying excellent fly fishing in attractive natural surroundings.
