NOT ONLY IS FISHING AN EXCELLENT SPORT, BUT ALSO MAKES A FANTASTIC HOBBY
′Try it lessons′ make it easier for newcomers of all ages to get into this superb sport and learn a new skill that can last a lifetime. The courses are professionally run and aimed at complete novices with our friendly coaches taking you through each stage step by step, teaching you everything you need to know to be able to have an enjoyable day’s fishing. In partnership with the BTFRA (British Trout Farmers Restocking Association) and in memory of the late Rob Mackie, we are proud to announce the monies provided by the memorial fund, has enabled us to reduce the cost of introducing juniors to the sport of fishing for rainbow trout to £20.
Olivia McArdle who visited us for a lesson in April had this to say:
"I thoroughly enjoyed my experience fishing with Northumbrian Water because it was something new, different and really interesting. The staff were great and helped me along the way by teaching me everything to know about fishing. I met some new friends, which is good because I can go again and meet up with people who I've had fun with. Altogether I caught 4 fish and brought some home for tea."
Dates and prices
Lessons alternate between fly and multi bait and are held every Tuesday and Sunday from Tuesday 4 April.
Three hour lessons cost £35 for adults and £20 for under 18's and all of the tackle is provided.

Multi bait lessons
If you have never fished before then this is for you! This is an introduction into the sport of angling using various baits such as worm, PowerBait and spinners. This will include casting instruction, a demonstration on how to set up your tackle and the methods behind hooking, playing and landing a fish properly. All this is done whilst your bait is in the water with the expectation of catching some trout for tea!
Fly fishing lessons
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 overview 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.
