Nymhphing Course

This season Sportfish has teamed up with nymphing guru and AAPGAI Master Instructor, Jim Williams, to offer an excellent one day insight into the often poorly understood world of nymph fishing. Fish spend a great deal of their time feeding sub-surface, so when the weather is poor and the fly life isn’t playing ball, why not tie a nymph on and carry on catching fish?









Charles and Alex Jardine will be hosting a trip to Laxardal, Iceland in July 2013. This destination should be on every trout fishers bucket list and what better way to tick it off than head out and experience it with the fanatical trout fishing father son duo. They will be on hand to offer knowledge and advice while you experience some of the world’s best dry fly fishing for huge prehistoric looking brown trout. The cost is from £1,670 excluding flights.
Accommodation is on a single room basis with shared guide.

Trip date options:
8th July      to       12th July 2013
11th July     to      15th July 2013
8th July      to       15th July 2013

What’s it like to be plunged headfirst into the world of fly fishing for a day?

Daniel Marsh found out…

The anglers view

Having experienced quite a bit of coarse fishing as a younger man in my local neck of the woods (the Cambridgeshire Fens) a fly rod was something that never really crossed my angling path. It always looked so alien; that strange thick line and antiquated looking reel – it wasn’t fishing as I knew it, or remembered it.

Whereas with coarse fishing, one always assumed that if you didn’t quite understand something (a new type of lure, a different rigging system) you could just give it a go and work it out for yourself. Fly fishing never seemed quite so easily blagged to me.

It was with this perspective that I approached Sportfish’s One Day Stillwater Fly Fishing Course: I had no idea. No idea why fly line was thicker at one end than the other; no idea why fish couldn’t see that huge line a mile away; no idea why you didn’t reel all that loose line in on that odd circular reel; and I certainly had no idea how it all fitted together.
