Bristol Water Fishing Tuition
COVID-19 Special arrangements for each session. See individual event for further info.
Bristol Water Fisheries would like to encourage everyone to have a go at fly fishing. This fantastic hobby will get you outdoors where you can meet like minded friends and hopefully succeed in catching some healthy, fresh trout to eat.
Fly fishing has to be one of the most rewarding ways to catch fish. Whether you become obsessed with perfecting your casting technique or tying your own killer fly patterns, there is more to learn about fly fishing than many people realise.
As fly fishing is such a multifaceted past time we strongly recommend that everyone starting out seeks qualified, expert advice before purchasing equipment and setting off for the lakes. To help you get the best start in your new pursuit, Bristol Water Fisheries organise tuition by fully qualified instructors throughout the year.
For beginners we offer a five hour course with Martin Cottis, a local guide and instructor with over 25 years experience on our lakes. These lessons will provide casting and fishing tuition giving a solid platform from which you can progress. All tackle, permits and licences are supplied and we aim to have everyone casting with a fly to an acceptable standard before taking them for a short fishing from bank and boat. The cost for the five hour lesson is £70.00 per adult and £30.00 for juniors (under 18 years old) with the maximum number of pupils capped at six.
After a lesson with Martin Cottis each participant is entitled to two complimentary day bank fishing permits at our waters.
All tuition must be booked in advance as availability can not be guaranteed.
