I live and work on the banks of the River Adur, Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, England. I’m a L2 game angling coach. Licensed, registered and insured with the Angling Trust. With over 35 years experience in fly fishing. I offer fly fishing coaching for the absolute novice or improver wishing to hone their skills. For instance: any problems with casting, line not casting straight, fly catching the line in mid-air, hitting the rod, can’t get the distance right? Just a few hours tuition with a certified instructor can help you to review, identify and fix, so as to appreciably improve your casting technique. Resulting in more fish caught. Unless you have your own, I supply all quality gear. All you need to bring is wellies, eye protection/sunglasses and preferred drinks. There is free parking and public toilets onsite. For booking a 3 hour beginners or improvers session, please email me for availability and pricing.
- Beginners: An introduction to fly fishing. I suggest a session which takes up to three hours; first half on my local green next to the River Adur to include about the tackle, it’s purpose, the way it works and how to assemble and use it safely when fly fishing. Discuss and choose flies for different species and conditions. Learn the basic, overhead and roll casting techniques and other tricks. How to play and net a fish once hooked. A ten minute tea break. (tea/coffee supplied) then onto the River Adur to try out and practice your new skills. Once you learn to fly-fish a river such as the Adur, you should be able to fish almost anywhere. So then it’s up to you to practice and enjoy your fly fishing!
- About the River sessions for beginners. Tuition session are currently £75 inclusive of loan on good, up-to-date tackle and equipment. I have several tackle outfits to suit different ages and abilities. But please do bring your own wellies, cap and eye protection/sunglasses. If you have your own tackle, then please bring it along to the session and we can make sure the outfit is balanced and set up correctly for you.
- Gifting: fly fishing tuition gives someone special, a coached fly fishing session. If you would like to double up with a friend then contact me for special rates.
