Beginners Fly Fishing Tutorials
For our guests interested in learning how to fly fish, or who are looking for a novel way to spend a morning, why not partake in a half or a full day’s fly fishing tutorial at the hotel with one of our experienced tutors? Whilst you may not become an expert fly fisherman in a morning, the tutorial intends to give the participants a good insight into the basics of fly fishing. There is a maximum of 3 people per tutorial with a minimum age of 12. It is imperative to book a fly fishing tutorials in advance to avoid disappointment.
Participants are taught how to set up their tackle correctly, cast competently, learn which flies to use and much more. The tutorial commences on the lawn in the walled garden where initial casting techniques begin. Later in the session, the students are taken to a section of the river where they will put their skills into practice.
