Availability & pricing
Courses can be tailored to your own needs. A session could last for a single day, a day & a night (24 hour) or longer, the choice is yours. For longer sessions we are often able to fish more than one water and cover many more skills such as rig mechanics or accurate distance casting one day and surface fishing the next, for example. Week days and weekends are available.
All tackle and bait will be supplied for you to use although you can use your own tackle if you wish.
