Fly Fishing Beginners Course
This one day course is for those with little or no experience in Fly Fishing. It gives you a really enjoyable day out, while providing all the basic skills and information needed to enable you to start fly fishing for yourself.
You even get to take a fish home with you – filleted if you like, and an exclusive booklet to remind you of the day and the techniques that you learned.
You also receive a half full loyalty card which when full entitles you to a free 4 hour ticket or a half price 8 hour ticket.
The shorter junior courses (16yrs and under) focus a little more on the practical side of fishing and a little less on the theory.
At only £60 for adults and £30 for juniors they make great presents, and we can issue attractive named gift certificates. We can leave the dates open if bought as a gift.
The adult courses are run with a maximum of 4 attendees to 1 professional instructor
