Our fee for one to one fly casting and fly fishing tuition is £30 per hour . Because of very high fuel charges we regret that minimum period of tuition is 2 hours. The Fee for a half day is £90 and for a full 7 hour day is £180.
For extra anglers please add £40 per angler making the total cost for 2 anglers for half a day £130 or £220 for a full day . PLEASE NOTE that these fees are the total fees and not per person .
Payment can be made by either cash or cheque .
Tuition Gift Vouchers
If you know someone who is considering having fly fishing instruction or fly casting lessons then why not purchase a voucher as a gift which can cover the cost of tuition or can be put towards it. Vouchers are available from £25 upwards.
Instruction takes place on well stocked private day ticket or Association waters where catch and release is permitted.
A permit is required to fish these waters and varies in price from about £10 – £25 depending on whether or not fish are to be killed. Normally permits are bought at the venue but some have to be purchased in advance and we are happy to do this for you. We will advise you of the permit requirements for the water to be used.
For casting only it may be possible to use grass or the “free” stretch of the River Kent in Kendal thus keeping costs down.
If you prefer to have the tuition on a water you are familiar with then we are happy to travel a reasonable distance but may have to include a small extra charge to cover fuel costs.
All Clients aged 12 years and upwards must be in possession of Environment Agency fishing licences prior to instruction taking place. You can purchase day, 8 day or season licences from any Post Office or online from the Environment Agency website http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk
Unless you intend to fish for migratory fish (Salmon and Sea Trout) at some stage in the year then the licence to buy is the Non Migratory Trout and Coarse Fish version.
The licence arrangements changed from 1 April 2017 and season licences run for 365 days from date of purchase. Day licences are £6 and 8 day ones £12 . However if you decide to purchase a season licence after using the short term licence then the cost will be deducted from the full price of the season licence which is excellent news.
Children between the ages of 12 & 16 years still still need licences but from 1 April 2017 they are free which is a great step forward by the Environment Agency.
Please ensure that you have ample warm clothing suitable for the time of year along with waterproof outer clothing in case the weather is wet or cold. For footwear we suggest wellingtons or waterproof boots. Wading is not undertaken except for some river instruction.
We also recommend that you bring a wide brimmed hat or baseball type cap and polarised sunglasses both for safety and fish spotting opportunity.
