Game - Beginners Fly Fishing and Improvers Days 2022

Placeholder Picture

If you want to start fly fishing or are already on your way, our fly fishing courses will help you get to grips with the basics. The courses are run throughout the year, on weekdays and at weekends.

Experienced and qualified Angling Trust instructors offer a full day’s tuition and cover the skills and tactics which the beginner needs to learn. 

All equipment and licences are provided. If you have your own tackle, please bring it. We can assess its suitability for reservoir fishing. We will discuss, demonstrate and teach you:

Tying Knots and Leaders
Fly selection and Fly-tying
Tackle selection
Basic fishing techniques

We will cover all this in the morning and spend the afternoon putting your newly acquired knowledge into practise. The cost including refreshments and a light lunch is £tba for an adult, £tba for juniors (14 to 17 years). Find a suitable date and then book a course by calling the fishing lodge at your chosen venue. There will be a maximum of six students on any course. On completing the course you will be entitled to buy a Starter Season Permit – an offer only available to our students. The cost for the AW Boat Tuition course is £tba, based on two anglers sharing the boat. To see more about AW Boat Tuition, please click here.

The courses will be available at Rutland, Grafham and Pitsford waters, with the day starting at 10.00am. To book on one of these very popular courses, please call the fishing lodge of your preferred venue, Rutland Water on 01780 686441 or Grafham Water on 01480 810531 or Pitsford on 01604 781350.
