Fly fishing for trout on a stillwater is how the majority of people enter the sport and there are a plethora of lakes all over the country making it easy to grab a full day, or even just a couple of hours after work, without any real planning or preparation.
It’s a great way to unwind surrounded by great scenery, wildlife and the occasional like-minded angler relaxing in the fresh air, hopefully catching a fish or two along the way.
If this is something you have fancied having a go at why not join us at the Sportfish Game Fishing Centre
just off the M4 motorway at Junction 12 for a full day of instruction and fishing - but most of all fun.
The course is aimed at beginners or anyone who may have left the sport and wish to get back into the swing of things, we run them on a Saturday too so there’s probably no need to take time off work. And don’t worry if you haven’t got any equipment, we can provide that for you.
Kicking off at about 9.30am the course is restricted to three people only, so plenty of time can be spent with instructors Matt, JT or Chris. We will talk tackle in the morning - with a look at all the kit that is available and, more importantly, how it all works and why we use it. We will even spend time in the store getting ‘hands on’ with the latest kit.
Then it’s down to the really fun bit - getting out and having a go at the casting on the lawn, trying to get that fly where it needs to be….in front of that fish!
After lunch we go fishing proper for the afternoon and you can fish for brown and rainbow trout on our fully-stocked 12-acre lake and even take a couple home for dinner. If you’re lucky enough to get a couple early on you can keep fishing on a catch and release basis for the rest of the afternoon, honing those all-important fishing skills.
During the fishing Matt, JT or Chris will be on hand at all times to help and guide you in how to tackle up, play, net your fish and most importantly fish welfare.
The day concludes at around 4.30 returning to the shop for a well-earned cup of tea.
By the end of the day it is hoped that you have had a real taste of all that stillwater fly fishing has to offer and we hope that you will be well and truly ‘hooked’.
