Fly Fishing Lessons

Fly fishing lessons with a qualified Fishing Instructor can provide you with a shortcut to success....

Whether you are a beginner or a more advanced fly fisher, I can organise a day of fly fishing tuition on one of our beautiful rivers or lakes to suit your needs. This can range from learning to cast, to improving your casting or to learning new fishing skills.

Fly fishing lessons are the ideal way to get you started in this great sport

Fly fishing is a fantastic sport and a great way to relax, but like any other sport, without proper guidance, it can be frustrating for the beginner - a day with me will start you off on the right track.
On a typical day we will cover:

  • Safety on the water
  • Tackle - rods, lines, flies etc.
  • Casting
  •  Rivercraft
  • Basic fishing techniques

I do my best to ensure that you have a great experience in beautiful surroundings and hopefully you will finish the day having caught your first fish and hooked on a sport that will provide you with a lifetime of enjoyment.
