Qualified Salmon and Trout Fishing Tuition ensures enjoyment from the very 'start' and creates a solid foundation on which to build the fundamental skills needed to fish for game fish. Tuition builds an interest in the sport and makes catching fish all the more easier and all the more enjoyable.   Learning the basics will make a huge difference and significantly improve your chances of landing fish. Learn all about the tackle, how to set it up, which casts to use, how to tie useful knots, fly & bait life, the fish themselves, and even basic safety at the waters edge. Learning to fish makes a great break away from it all and is ideal for the individual, couples, family holidays , stag parties and corporate days.
