Introduction to Boat Fishing with Anglian Water
You and a fishing partner can now spend 2½ hours with a qualified fishing instructor, and learn how to handle and fish from an Anglian Water outboard fishing boat.

Start at 10am from Rutland Water (Tel:01780 686441), Grafham Water (Tel: 01480 810531) or Pitsford (Tel: 01604 781350).

Cost £45.00 each angler, based on two anglers sharing the boat.

After the instructor has left, you can continue fishing for the rest of the day and put into practice all that you have learnt. Eight fish limit.

If you do not have a fishing partner, we can try and find you one of a similar standard. How 'Boating' things have changed since the Victorian times, as shown in the print to your left! Learn to handle and fish from a boat correctly. Improve your catch rate and your enjoyment.

All bookings are made via the lodge, so please contact the fishing lodges at the above 3 waters for more details and dates. For any more information or questions relating to any of our courses, please use our eForm by clicking here or telephone Peter directly on 07922-126154.
