Fly Fishing Lessons & Courses

Fly Fishing Lessons and Courses

We offer a range of different types of lessons and courses to suit everyone’s needs at any ability.

Casting Lessons

Enjoying the preparation for the next fishing adventure is undoubtedly a big part of our wonderful sport. We know conditions will not always be perfect, so why not learn how to cast into a blustery wind or Speycast in that tricky pool with a high bank? Fishing effectively in a wide range of conditions is something that separates those that catch fish and those that fail. If you plan to travel to fish this year surely a fly casting lesson is a sound investment. We are able to offer half day lessons in all salmon, trout and any saltwater disciplines, group lessons and single hour one to one lessons.

Fly Tying Lessons

A sound knowledge of the basic techniques in fly tying is essential to the construction of quality fishing flies. Our lessons will teach you a tailored range of flies to suit your fishing interests and help you improve your skills. Lessons can be on a one-to-one or group basis.

One Day Stillwater Trout Courses

To get the most from your trout fishing, a sound basic knowledge of casting, tackle selection, entomology and fishing techniques will set you on the road to success. All of these skills will be learnt on this course you may even go home with a trout for the pot!

Residential and Off Site CoursesOne Day Chalkstream Trout & Grayling Courses

To many fly fisherman, the ultimate experience is watching a trout or grayling rise to the surface to sip down a carefully presented dry fly or nymph. We can help you achieve this ambition on one of our courses. All of these take place on a beautiful stretch of either the Hampshire Test or Itchen rivers in the stunning countryside! You will learn casting, entomology, river fishing tactics and fish spotting amongst other skills.

Residential Courses

For the ultimate fly fishing experience, nothing beats one of our residential courses! You’ll be out in the field for a number of days or nights fishing with our expert instructors helping you every step of the way. We run courses throughout the seasons, at prime locations and the best times to give you the best chance of success. Along with this we couple our courses with high quality local accommodation to ensure your comfort and convenience. For example we’ve recently completed courses for spring salmon fishing on the Tyne, and are looking forward to our North country trout courses on the River Wharfe.

Testimonials

“Just thought I'd say thanks for looking after me on the training course and let you know I have been putting some the techniques I learned into practice with devastating effect with an account of 17 fish since the course 8 of which were caught on the same day.”

Brian T from Berkshire

“I wish to thank you for a wonderful couple of days on the Wye. I have always enjoyed my fishing - but you have given me a new dimension to fishing generally. Much appreciated!”
