Fishing Lessons

Fishing lessons can be adapted for complete beginners or for budding anglers with a bit more experience. So if you already fish but would like to improve your skills, please contact Matthew to discuss how he can help.

Coarse fish are freshwater fish other than trout and salmon, such as roach, tench, perch and carp. It is common to catch several different species in a day. We return them to the water rather than taking them home to eat.

The coarse fishing lessons include:

  • Whip fishing close in (a whip is a simple fishing rod ideal for beginners)
  • Fishing further out with a rod and reel (including learning to cast)
  • How to bring fish in, handle and unhook them
  • Different types of bait and when to use them
  • Watercraft (how to locate fish and avoid scaring them)
  • Explanation of licences and permits
  • Angling etiquette and code of conduct
