Introduction to Boat Fishing Course

If you have never boat fished before and just don’t know where to start, then this introductory course is the perfect introduction.

Jonathan Tomlinson is now running beginner’s stillwater boat fishing courses on Haywards Farm Lake at the Sportfish Game Fishing Centre in Theale. The 11-acre lake is stocked with fish to double figures and provides the perfect venue for getting to grips with this type of fishing.

Course Aims

The course covers all aspects of boat fishing including: setting up drogues and drift fishing techniques, sunk line work and washing line techniques, fishing the hang, leader setup for multiple flies, emerger, dry fly and sub surface nymph fishing and indeed anything else you would like to know!

The course also includes the use of the boat and a 2-fish ticket on the lake. If you catch your fish early on, no problem - we also include catch and release fishing thereafter. However, you must keep your first two fish.

Course Cost Includes:

  • Exclusive and full instruction with Jonathan Tomlinson.
  • Boat hire and lunch.
  • A 2-fish ticket with subsequent catch and release thereafter for the duration of the course. (You can happily bank fish the lake after your course for the remainder of the day to complete your two fish ticket.).
