River Days is the unique year round river fishing and guiding service run by Steve Roberts, an Angling Trust qualified fishing coach and associate member of the Game Angling Instructors Association.
Based in West Berkshire life long river angler Steve Roberts has developed a series of angling packages for those wishing to have a great day out on the river, whether it’s using vintage tackle, learning how to cast a fly or float, or just plain catching fish!
Covering a wide range of fishing locations and species Steve will provide you with a dedicated and inclusive service, and always strives to give his clients the very best of times out and about by, or on, the river.
Steve owns two boats from which to explore the delightful river Thames from vantage points that simply cannot be accessed from the bank, and can also take you to private weirpools and quiet reaches of famous rivers such as the Kennet, Loddon, Stour and Wye.
Providing fishing throughout the entire year Steve will share his life long passion for coarse fish such as barbel, chub, pike, perch and roach, or have you casting a fly for trout or salmon, all in delightful locations. Such varied aspects of the art of angling require particular tackle and techniques, and Steve’s speciality is to not only provide top class tackle with which to fish for them, but also to instruct all levels from complete beginners onwards in the ways to find success and enjoyment doing so.
If you want to use a delicate silk line for trout, cast a long and beautiful line for salmon, trot a quill float down the stream for red finned roach, or feel a barbel take the line from your fingertips in the dark Steve will coach you from the basic theory to a fish in the net!
And no River Day would be complete without a jolly good lunch, freshly made with produce from his organic kitchen garden. On the Thames this can be enjoyed on a private island, or under the willows in the fishing punt, but imagine a sumptuous hamper on the banks of a chalkstream or the majestic river Wye… Steve’s access to the Kennet includes pleasant private lawns, or more remote riverside picnics are in store in the quieter reaches he’ll take you to.
