Abbots Worthy on the Itchen

One To One Personal Tuition Day River Itchen

During this one-to-one fly fishing lesson you will learn how exciting fishing in gin clear water can be. This is a great opportunity to fish a purely wild beat, with only native brown trout and grayling. You may be a beginner or you may wish to improve your fly fishing skills, so we will customise the day to suit your requirements. You can learn how to correct those annoying casting faults or perhaps try out some new specialist tactics that can give you an extra edge on difficult days. These days are available throughout the season subject to availability of the beat. Please bring a packed lunch

"This course was very well-presented, and of great benefit to both my son and me. I will be attending more courses in the future. The ghillie, Michael Williams, was inspirational."
