You will have a professional fly fishing coach guiding you, and over two days will gain the skills to fish independently even if you have never fly fished before. If one or both of you already have some fly fishing experience we can work on more advanced skills. All equipment provided.
You will be fishing spring fed, clear water lakes nearby at the Avon Springs fishery and your permits allow you to catch and keep up to 4 trout per person per day.
Package price below is based on 2 days stillwater fishing, depending on season it may be possible to fish one or two of the days on nearby chalkstream. For beginners we recommend the first day is on stillwater, for more experienced anglers both days could be on the river. Chest waders (not provided by We Fly Fish) are needed for the river but not for stillwater. Please contact us for details and prices for river fishing.
