About Our School for Fly Fishing Lessons and Courses

Fishing Lessons and Courses with Sportfish

Our Fly Fishing School

The Sportfish Tuition TeamWelcome to the Sportfish fly fishing school, located at the Sportfish Game Fishing Centre in Reading. We offer fly casting lessons, fly tying courses, chalkstream fishing and courses for salmon, trout, pike & sea trout. Our aim is that all our clients who receive tuition have an enjoyable experience and leave us with the best possible chance in succeeding with their goals.

Features and Benefits

We are proud of our fantastic location, 5 minutes from Junction 12 on the M4 and only half an hour's drive outside London. Theale train station (on the Great Western Mainline) is just next door. Our school is easily accessible from anywhere in Southern England or further a field.

Our location is perfect for tuition and with Haywards Farm Lake we have a 12-acre venue with casting platforms both above and below the water, allowing you to perfect every cast from a single-handed overhead to the more technical snake rolls and snap T’s.

Our casting instructors: Chris, JT, and Robin, are on hand seven days a week to deliver the very best in fly casting instruction and game fishing tuition. They can take you through all you need to improve your casting and your fishing enjoyment and success.

Plus, our tuition area is just a short walk from the Sportfish Reading store which offers you the perfect opportunity to try a range of equipment with an instructor before you purchase.

From Beginner to Advanced

Our experienced team of instructors is on hand at the Game Fishing Centre seven days a week to deliver the very best in fly casting instruction and game fishing tuition. Whether you are an absolute beginner, an improver or an experienced angler looking to sharpen up before a trip, we can tailor a lesson to your exact requirements, from single and double-handed disciplines to advanced techniques and boat fishing.

As well as hourly lessons and group tuition we provide beginner's stillwater days and introduction to, and improver fly tying courses. We also offer tailored junior tuition on our new Kingfisher Pond as well as one day courses on chalkstreams, rivers and lakes throughout the year.

We also offer a varied portfolio of day and residential courses throughout the UK and, in conjunction with Farlows Travel, across the globe. These are designed to be fun and to allow you to hone existing skills and learn new ones in great company and great surroundings – with a chance of catching some great fish too!

Try Before You Buy

This is where we really stand out! The ability to try rods on our lake is a fantastic facility and with tackle becoming ever more expensive it avoids purchasing mistakes before they happen - you?ll probably get a few tips along the way too! We also part exchange rods and reels to ensure you can always keep up with the latest developments in the sport.
