For anglers who wish to learn the art of fly casting using both natural and imitative patterns - then this is the method for you! You will receive casting demonstrations followed by a practical session on the grass. You will also receive an over view of various tactics used to locate, tempt and hook a fish. You will examine different flies and how they can be used in different conditions and at various times of year. This is an extremely popular fishing lesson lead by a qualified casting instructor and has built the foundations for many successful fly anglers.

Fly fishing lesson - intermediate

After feedback from participants of our starter fly fishing lessons, we have constructed this next step to cater for anglers who wish to further advance their fly fishing skills. This explores more in depth tactics and methods as well as additional practical tuition to learn more advanced casting techniques. Much more time will be spent on the bank with a great chance to hook, play and land a fish under the helpful guidance of our instructors.

Fly fishing lesson - advanced

This is an opportunity for seasoned fly anglers to further refine their casting skills with advanced demonstrations and opportunities to practice these fly fishing techniques with expert guidance. There will also be more time in this session for the instructor to offer more targeted tuition if an angler feels there is an area of the sport where their knowledge is lacking. This should arm the fly angler with a rounded knowledge in the art of fly fishing.
