Two-Day Spring Spey Casting Course at Golden Grove on the River Towy

Early Summer Spey Casting Course at Golden Grove on the River Towy

Sportfish Tuition Update

Our team of expert instructors – Chris, JT, Robin and Nick – are back at the Sportfish Game Fishing Centre and are once again delivering safe and socially–distanced casting tuition on a one–to–one and small group basis. If you are an absolute beginner, looking to improve your technique, or an experienced fisher seeking a few advanced refinements, get yourself booked in now by calling the team on 0118 930 3860.

We will be restarting our highly acclaimed One–Day Stillwater Trout Course on Haywards Farm Lake shortly too, these always sell out quickly so do make sure you register your interest early.

We are currently unable to deliver our usual off–site trout, sea trout, salmon and grayling courses, but we are hoping to be able to restart these in 2022. Please call us on 0118 930 3860 for further details and get your name down to receive advance notification of the schedule.


For the past four seasons we have used the beats at Golden Grove on the River Towy for our ‘brush up’ Spey casting clinic; this weekend has always been a huge success and it’s a great way to start the new season.

The aim of the course is to help you to become more efficient with the casting element of double handed fishing but there is the chance of making a fantastic catch too, whatever happens you will leave with a wealth of new information and an improved understanding of Spey casting.

For 2017 we are very pleased to offer the same style of course, but in a slightly different format - you can either join us for the full two days, or for a single day. You will have two Sportfish hosts for each day and Jamie Harries, the Golden Grove head ghillie, will also be on hand to offer a wealth of knowledge on his beloved sea trout and salmon.

Although this is primarily a casting course to benefit your fishing for the rest of the season, don’t dismiss the chance of landing a stunning fresh salmon or sea trout!
