Beginners Fly Fishing Course

This 1 day introduction to Fly Fishing course starts with a briefing at Vale House Kitchen before we head out with renowned fly fishing instructor Neil Keep to our local lakes. There you will work with him to learn all the skills and tricks to master this most elegant sport. After mastering the art of casting and learning about which flies will tempt the trout we will spend the day fishing and hopefully land a fair few for the table!
Lunch is included.

✹ About the tackle, what it does and how to set it up.
✹ How to make a fly cast safely.
✹ How to know which fly to use and basic entomology (the study of fly life).
✹ Different fishing techniques.
✹ Playing and landing fish (what to do once you have hooked your fish!)
