Stillwater Trout Fishing Course

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.

Trout Course Aims

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 six people, so you can spend plenty of time with your instructors, two of whom will be with you all day. 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 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 the fish!

Lunch will be provided, after which it’s time to go fishing ‘proper’ for the afternoon and you can fish for a variety of trout on the well-stocked lake - and even take a couple home for dinner. If you’re lucky enough to catch 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.

Your two instructors will be on hand throughout the day to help and guide you in how to tackle up, cast, hook, play and net your fish.

The day concludes at around 4.30pm when you can return 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 offers and we hope that you will be well and truly ‘hooked’.

Please book early to avoid disappointment as these courses are very popular
