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, through Great Wishford towards Warminster. Since then, The Wilton Club has continued, through an unbroken line of first class River Keepers, to manage and improve this premier wild brown trout and specimen grayling fishing.
In recent years the River Till, an upper tributary has been added to our fishing. Narrower, more sinuous with challenging conditions for large specimens, it joins the Wylye at its Northern end.
There are also ‘carriers’ – narrow, streams that have split off from the main river through 'hatches' where they meander for several hundred yards through ancient water meadows and copses before re-joining the main river a few hundred yards lower downstream. These 'carriers' are the haunts of specimen wild brown trout
The Wilton Club is unique in offering several miles of varied classical chalk stream dry fly trout fishing that is both challenging and stimulating to its members.
We remain a welcoming group of fishing friends focused on providing and enjoying excellent fly fishing in attractive natural surroundings. If you'd like to consider becoming a member, please email to:
