This one day course is for those with little or no experience in fly fishing. It gives you a really enjoyable day out, while providing all the basic skills and information needed to enable you to start fly fishing for yourself.
You even get to take a fish home with you – filleted if you like, and an exclusive booklet to remind you of the day and the techniques that you learned.
You also receive a voucher which entitles you to a free 4 hour ticket fishing at Kilnsey, so you can come back to hone your skills in our beautiful setting.
At only £95 for adults they make great presents, and we can issue attractive named gift certificates. We can leave the dates open if bought as a gift.
