Do you want to give yourself and your child the gift of spending some quality time together learning a new skill and creating memories? Fishing offers just the right balance of excitement and relaxation in the great outdoors, and there’s nothing to beat the sense of shared achievement when you settle down to enjoy a freshly cooked fish that you both worked together to catch.
Kilnsey in the Yorkshire Dales is the perfect venue for families to learn the rewarding sport of fly fishing. We’ve been introducing thousands of people of all ages to the joys of fishing for over three decades.
This half day experience is ideal for those who would like to learn the basics of fly fishing in the fantastic scenery of Upper Wharfedale, through working together to hook a fish. It gives you a really enjoyable and fulfilling experience in the great outdoors, while providing all the basic skills needed to enable you to start fly fishing as a family. No previous experience required – all you need is your enthusiasm to try something new.
You will get to take home with you a fish that you’ve caught (prepared for eating) plus an exclusive booklet to remind you of the day and the new skills that you have learned. We want you to experience the thrill of getting a fish on the line, so our Parent and Child Fishing Experience focuses a little more on the practical side of fishing and a little less on the theory.
