I live and work on the banks of the River Adur, Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, England. An Angling Trust Registered level two coach, with over 30 years experience in fly fishing. I offers fly fishing coaching accessible for the absolute novice or improver. For any given level of skill, 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 and ease-of-approach to your fly fishing. Even if you may have some restricted movement, a shoulder injury, or are finding casting uncomfortable, I have a good deal of experience of helping otherwise enthusiastic fisherman to analyse casting, identify movement in relation to discomfort and working to adjust technique.
Tuition and guiding may also be arranged to take place at one of the recommendable Sussex trout fishing venues. For example, Chalk Springs offers four small lakes with crystal clear water, which means you can see the fish and observe them responsively reacting to your fly, providing insights into the nature and behaviour of a range of fish species. Arlington Reservoir, near Lewes, has a much larger body of water to fish, from bank or boat. Perhaps not an ideal first-timer venue but guided sessions for fly fishermen keen to learn more about reservoir tactics and the double-haul cast can be very rewarding. Unless specified tuition is done on a one to one basis   Please check the Booking page for prices.
