What will my fly-fishing experience include?
Typically, our fishing experience lasts for 2.5 hours and includes:
an introduction to the technique/s of fly-fishing
a lesson on the lawn before we depart for a nearby fishing spot
transport in our Jaguar F-Pace to a nearby lochan or a river (dependent on weather, season and availability)
approximately 90 minutes’ fishing time
This experience is intended for novices. Whilst we are always optimistic about landing a catch, the point of this experience is very much the time you will spend outdoors - it’s about the relaxation and headspace as much as it’s about fishing.
We can tailor the fly-fishing lesson to suit your own experience. For example, if you are a more experienced fisherman, you can bring our own gear and we can head straight out to the fishing spot.
Good to know:
We can provide all the equipment you need, just be sure to wear outdoor shoes and clothing suitable for the weather on the day
We also offer a longer version of this experience, with lunch. For £175, you can book 4 hours and we’ll include a picnic featuring the very best local food and drink.
