This unique experience is ideal for anyone who has ever wanted to learn the fine art of fly-fishing. You’ll travel to Rutland Water – the largest fishing lake in Europe – where an expert fisherman will teach you all about the fishing tackle, the flies used, what, when and how to fish them, how to read the water and how to cast a fly. You’ll even be able to take up to two fish home with you, should you be lucky enough to get a catch.
This fun and fascinating experience is perfect for any fishing enthusiast! You’ll start your experience in a fully-equipped lakeside fishing cabin, where an expert will teach you all about the fishing tackle, the flies used, which fish to use the flies for and how to fish for them, how to read the water and how to cast a fly. You’ll then be able to put what you’ve learned into practice, as you fly fish for trout from the banks of the stunning Rutland Water. Depending on how successful you are, you’ll be able to take up to two fish home with you, which will be prepared and packed for you – and even if you don’t manage to catch anything, you’ll still receive certificates to show your friends! You will also receive light refreshments throughout your experience.
Covering 3,500 acres and boasting around 26 miles of shoreline, Rutland Water is Europe’s largest fishing lake – and is home to a large number of world-class trout. One of England’s most beautiful rural areas, this stunning environment presents a unique and tranquil fishing experience that you’ll never forget.
