What’s Right for You, Fly Fishing Course or 1-2-1 Lesson?

Posted on November 12th, 2018

When arranging fly fishing tuition for yourself or someone else, it’s important to select the right format. For this reason, we’ve provided you with a guide to choosing between our fly fishing courses and fly fishing lessons, so you receive the very best experience!

Fly Fishing Courses

Beginners Fly Fishing Courses

Beginners Fly Fishing Courses

Our beginners fly fishing courses run during spring and autumn annually. Both seasons are popular, productive times, with events designed for people wanting a fun, effective, introduction to fly fishing. These day’s suit people who enjoy learning as part of a group very well. Many clients meet future fishing buddies during their course and this adds a real social aspect to fly fishing. At the same time, we recognise the value of personalisation. That’s why we keep group sizes small, key general points are imparted to the group, while a little 1-2-1 time fine tunes things for you.

Fly fishing lessons offer the benefit of personalised coaching designed just for you!

Booking a fly fishing lesson gives you the option to have 1-2-1 time with Steve or share the lesson with people you know. You can book to suit your availability as we operate 7 days a week throughout the year and all sessions are bespoke to help you achieve your goals while enjoying yourself waterside. This option suits people wanting to improve their fly fishing and beginners who prefer a private lesson tailored just for them.

Spring is a great time to start fly fishing!

April proved a real mixed month weather wise, however fishing was excellent! A month of introducing newcomers to the sport, eager to enjoy Spring’s bountiful fly fishing. Plenty of seasoned anglers also took their annual fly casting tune up, in preparation for spring trout and salmon.

On the lakes we experienced some superb nymph fishing at times, with some really good buzzer hatches. As I type, we’ve just enjoyed our first fall of Hawthorne flies and the resulting trout feast on the buffet. More of this to come through May, as olives then Mayfly hatches kick in. Looking forward to sharing great nymph and dry fly fishing with clients this month.

River wise our first river trips have been to the highly productive Derbyshire Wye. Despite mixed conditions, we experienced some superb dry fly fishing with the river’s wild rainbow and brown trout. It only gets better and better here, with prolific fly hatches and dry fly fishing to look forward to. Our chalk stream fishing starts this week, with Mayfly around the corner it’s time to chase dream trout on dry flies! If you’ve not yet booked your fishing trip, we have 4 days available currently. Get in touch to book your day.
