Bob and Vera Carlson run a successful Fly Fishing Tuition and Fly Casting Instruction business based in Kendal, South Cumbria on the edge of the beautiful English Lake District. We are fully qualified fly fishing instructors and specialise in fly fishing and single handed fly casting instruction for beginners and anglers wishing to improve their skills.
All fly fishing tuition is given on a one to one basis to ensure that you get the most benefit from your session but we are happy to include a small number of friends, colleagues or relatives.
We also do a few specialised fly fishing instruction and casting days especially for small groups . Please see the link for details.
The tuition is given in a friendly, relaxed manner in a safe environment and is geared to your specific needs with the emphasis on having fun while learning. Waters used are located in South Cumbria and North Lancashire and are within easy access to the M6 motorway.
