Thank you for your super review. It's a great pleasure to introduce people to fly fishing and when it involves super people, as is normally the case as I seem to get really good guests coming to learn fly fishing, then it's even more of a pleasure. I thank you for your great company, and jokes! also. Rob

I knew nothing about fly fishing before coming here but that really didn't matter in the slightest. Rob was fantastic and arranged everything for us, equipment, permits boat hire etc. We spent a couple of days on the water with one of his best guides, Cameron, and had an absolutely brilliant time. I’ll definitely be back for more!

This was my first experience of fly fishing (something I had wanted to try for ages). We did the four hour introduction and had a fantastic day. The classroom element was really well explained and was followed by work in the field on practicing casting; this was a great time for the tutor to be able to coach me in improving my cast. We then spent a good hour on the lake edge and I caught a fish!!! I took my family and even the kids enjoyed it. Family was made very welcome and very much a part of the day. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a go at fly fishing; the tutor was excellent and I absolutely loved it. Well worth the cost.

This was just my second time fly fishing but I caught fish for the first time. Rob, the instructor was very knowledgeable and friendly, and he tailored the day to us. We were able to do things at our own pace but Rob always gave us advice and helped make the day very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this experience.
