Experience day

Catch your first fish on a fly with this 1 day beginners course.

Covering everything you need to know to start fly fishing. The morning is spent covering the fundamentals of the sport including a range of different casting techniques, how to locate fish, as well as how to catch, play fish, dispatch fish. I will also cover how to catch and release fish safely.

In the afternoon you have the chance to put everything you’ve learnt into practice on the water either from a boat or the bank (depending on conditions), all under Nigel’s expert guidance.

All fishing equipment will be supplied for the day. Your first catch is kept and all subsequent catches are released.
