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

Fly Fishing Lessons

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.
