Learn to Fly Fish

Learn to Fly Fish on Sat or Sun for £28 including tackle and 1 fish, for more details ring fishery owner Abigail for more information or pick up one of our blue leaflets from our pub or the fishery.


You may wish to take the opportunity to enjoy learning the necessary skills, and correct techniques from a qualified fly fishing and casting instructor.

By doing this you will be avoiding the many common fly casting faults and frustrating experience by many fly fishermen/women choosing to take up the sport.

For the experienced or well taught fisherman/woman, one to one fly casting or fly fishing lesson provides an ideal opportunity to improve not only your fly-casting technique, but your overall, river or stillwater fly fishing skills.

Tim James is our qualified casting instructor and he is available for you to book for a minimum of two hours. The cost for this instruction at Tavistock Trout Fishery is £149 and this charge includes two hours tuition, full day 4 fish permit on all our fly lakes, rod, reel, net, flies, line, priest, bag, net and glasses to protect your eyes. Free tea/coffee making facilities and a choice of complimentary biscuits are also included in our wooden lodge overlooking our stunning lakes.

If two anglers want to have instruction then the cost is reduced to £129 each. If three or more anglers want to have instruction then the cost is reduced to £119. EA licence needs to be purchased from the EA or a Post Office

To book Tim James for your fishing day, please ring the fishery.
