Fishing is not a glamour sport but thanks to the BBC2 series, Gone Fishing, which followed comedians Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse on their fishing trips, we all know it’s fun — and comedy gold.
Perhaps that’s why living alongside rivers is so popular. Such homes command high prices — especially if you’re on one of the chalk streams of the South such as the Test, Loddon or Itchen.
‘It’s impossible to say exactly how much a stretch of river enhances a property’s price,’ says George Bramley, of Knight Frank. ‘That depends on the exact location, the catch statistics and what else is on the market. But it is certainly considerable.’ ……
In West Wales, too, there is good fishing. ‘There is always demand for houses on the River Teifi and the Towy, both of which are renowned for their salmon and sea trout,’ says Carol Peett, of West Wales Property Finders.
‘They are particularly popular with retirees and as holiday-let investments. Fishermen bring in a steady rental income.’
