This is the ideal way to start fly fishing. Under the guidance of a qualified instructor at this fully-equipped fly fishing school stocked with brown, rainbow and the rare blue trout, you will cover all of the basics. We aim to get you fishing with confidence in the shortest time possible, with instructors providing invaluable knowledge and suggesting the best flies and tactics. Light refreshments are included and participants are welcome to take home a fish, for those who are lucky enough to catch one.


Selected dates (weekdays or weekends) during the season in April through to October. Please be aware that weekends are particularly popular.
