Waterboatman on the menu

Witnessed an incredible rise yesterday morning and found that the trout were gorging on waterboatman. Did not have a pattern in my fly box but still managed to tempt 2 browns and 4 rainbows on a black buzzer. Will be tying a few boatman patterns today ready for later.

A new session plan for 2019

Well. It’s been another good year for flyfishingsussex.com Although It’s been full on with other projects there has still been time to meet and introduce many keen anglers to the world of fly fishing. The season is coming to a close now and I’ll soon be finishing tuition sessions until March 2019. I plan to introduce a new half day session to include all the usual casting techniques, about tackle flies etc. but to be carried out at my new trout venue, So there will be an excellent chance to catch a brown or rainbow trout on your first lesson. Over the winter I will put up a new page on the website offering this new half day session. The cost will be around £130 inclusive one to one tuition, permits and use of quality fly fishing gear and good chance of a fish or two. Also what a great gift it would make for someone.
