fly fishing & watercraft lessons
Fly fishing, a very different skill to fly casting, requires patience, an understanding of your target species, watercraft and entomology. I have many years of knowledge and practical experience fishing the local rivers and upland lakes and will be very happy to help you whatever your experience. I can provide tackle if needed, and organise fishing permits. You can spend all the money you want on kit and equipment but if you have been poorly, or never, taught you may not get the best out of it.
