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.
