4 hour fly fishing introduction.

At Halliford Mere TW17 9NN : Wednesdays – Saturdays

Fly fishing with a qualified professional coach includes the dedicated services of the coach/guide, all fly fishing equipment, and fishing permits for the day.

We can arrange more than one coach if you have a larger group.

SKU: 4-hour Category:

Our prices include your permit, loan of all equipment needed and the dedicated services of a fly fishing coach licensed to practice by the Angling Trust. They exclude your Environment Authority rod licence which you must obtain in your own name if you do not already have one already.

Number of anglers per coach is important. For beginners, group sizes should be kept low to ensure safety and that participants enjoy their day. Children can have great fun fly fishing but special care needs to be taken to ensure a positive experience.

We therefore recommend the following maximum group sizes per coach

Aged 8 – 11 maximum 1 beginner per coach, with parent present throughout.
Aged 12 – 18 maximum 2 beginners per coach, with parent present throughout
Adults over 18 maximum 3 beginners per coach

If some of the anglers have fly fishing experience then we can increase group size to a maximum of 4 per coach, please contact us to discuss.

We can provide teams of coaches to cover groups of 20 anglers or more for corporate or other group events.

    As a 12th birthday present I booked the 4 hour fly fishing course for him and myself ( always wanted to have a go) . Booking was easy and was contacted by Marc who asked a few questions , what we were looking for and advice on things to bring and safety procedures.
    When we arrived our coach for the day was Terry a man of vast experience and love for the fly. He was so attentive and enthusiastic and was always making sure we were happy with the way things were going. It was an amazing experience listening to him and my Grandson was totally gobsmacked. He soon had us trying the Roll cast and over head cast .
    For a couple of total beginners it was great to actually get the line in the lake. We are now totally hooked and are looking to purchase our first fly fishing kit. Terry was very keen on the safety side as well and made sure we knew the rules that you don’t think of.
    I would highly recommend this course they don’t just teach you to put the fly in the water they teach you the science behind it all . That gives you the opportunity to decide if it is for you and they send follow up information and video footage if wanted.
    My grandson and I had an amazing day and will be back once we have got our rods and improved our technique. Halliford Mere beautiful place amazing day.
