Overview

This fun and fascinating experience is perfect for any fishing enthusiast! You’ll start in a fully-equipped lakeside fishing cabin, where an expert will teach you all about the fishing tackle, the flies used, which fish to use the flies for and how to fish for them. You will also be taught how to read the water and how to cast a fly. You’ll then be able to put what you’ve learned into practice, as you fly fish for trout from the banks of the stunning Rutland Water. Depending on how successful you are, you’ll be able to take up to two fish home with you, which will be prepared and packed – and even if you don’t manage to catch anything, you’ll still receive certificates to show your friends! You will also receive light refreshments throughout the experience.

Great fishing intro

Rob Waddington made us at home and gave us the basics so that we could cast a fly and understood the concepts of fly fishing. His manner was excellent and we actually felt that there was a possibility that we would in fact catch a fish! Fishing then on the beautiful Rutland Water was great. I unfortunately went home with no fish. Will definitely return to have another go for a full day.

Best fly fishing experience
05 April 2014
I have never done fly fishing before. This was a great introduction and explained really well. The teaching was very good and I had one to one tuition which was great. I spent about 1 1/2 hours being tutored in the use of the rod, lures, reading water conditions and the weather before we went out on the lake. The tutor was very good and helped me out a lot. He was great at watching me cast and showing me what to do to make it better. I got to spend about an hour fly fishing and caught a fish which we were able to take home (it tasted delicious!!)The whole family were made welcome, even our children enjoyed the day. We've all got the fly fishing bug now and look forward to doing it again.
