We are always happy to offer fly fishing advice to our visitors but some individuals may require a little extra tuition and instruction. We provide fly fishing lessons on an individual 1 to 1 basis. It is most important to us that we keep your visit fun whilst learning how to fly fish.
Steve (Fishery Manager), with over 40 years fishing experience, has provided tuition and instruction to males and female individuals of all ages, including; complete beginners who by the end of the lesson understand the basics of fly fishing and fisherman returning to the sport just wanting to improve their fly fishing technique.
