For those who love fishing, Hampshire's rivers are famous for their clear chalk streams which are some of the purest in the country.
The lower reaches of the Test and Itchen are great salmon fisheries and both rivers have a superb run of sea trout. The chalk stream of the River Meon to the east of the county also sports both sea and wild brown trout and the larger ponds of the New Forest are available for freshwater coarse fishing.
The coast of Hampshire offers the most varied saltwater fishing in the south of England. The triple estuary of Southampton Water, where the Rivers Test, Itchen and Hamble meet, is home to a wide variety of fish. The sheltered inshore waters of the Solent are good for mullet, bass and seasonal catches such as bream and mackerel.
