The Epicurean

An online magazine
dedicated to the finest in
british food, comfort and culture



A countryside adventure would not be complete without immersing oneself in one of Britain’s most renowned activities; fly fishing. Riddled with gin-clear, interlinking streams that are unique to the South West, it makes it easy to understand why fly fishing began its heritage here.

Whether you are a novice fisher or an advanced angler, we can add to your experience by providing qualified instructors to give you expert guidance during your afternoon hunting along rivers and streams. Last but not least, the chance to unwind in sublime relaxation with cigars and fine whisky later in the day at one of our Epicurean Collection pubs, whilst awaiting your prized winnings prepared by the chef.


  • Southern England is home to the best fly-fishing in the world
  • 95% of the world’s chalkstreams exist only in Britain; a rare habitat around the globe
  • We can arrange exclusive access to private beats with expert instructors
