Beginners Fly Fishing Course

  • This course has passed.

Join us on this one day Beginners Fly Fishing Course.

Fancy getting to grips with this fantastic outdoor sport? Involving an artificial ‘fly’ which is cast on a line, fly fishing often has a bit of a reputation as a tricky skill for beginners to acquire – which is why all of our courses take place under the expert guidance of our tutor Neil Keep, who has forty years’ experience fishing all over the UK and plenty of tips & tricks to share.

Skills

• How to set up the tackle and what it does
• How to make a fly cast safely
• Choosing 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!)

Our one-day Beginners Fly Fishing course starts with a briefing at our beautiful local lakes with renowned fly-fishing instructor Neil Keep. Once we’re out in the fresh air, Neil will teach you the skills you need to master the art of casting and help you choose the correct fly to tempt a few trout. With Neil on hand to supervise and guide you, you’ll then spend the day fishing and hopefully land a fair few for the table! A delicious lunch will be provided for all attendees.

Wondering what comes next? If you’ve completed this course and want the full Lake to Plate experience, you will be eligible to a 10% discount on our Fish Cookery Day. Fresh fish is a truly wonderful ingredient to work with in the kitchen, but can often be a little intimidating if you don’t cook it regularly, with quite a few pitfalls to avoid. This course is designed to give you the confidence you need to whip up fabulous fish dishes, covering everything from sustainable sourcing, to basic preparation skills, to delicious recipes. Please contact us if you are interested in this offer.
