Four Day Beginner's Course

A four-day course in trout fishing for beginners from age 11 upwards. Our most popular course. Complete beginners, handling a fly rod for the first time, can come on one of these courses and be led gradually, stage by stage, to the point where after four days they will be able to fish for river and lake trout reasonably well by themselves. The course involves a day’s casting instruction followed by a day’s stillwater fishing at Tinhay Lake, leading to two days’ fishing on the rivers. This in-depth, practical instruction is combined with workshops and lectures on tackle, safety, fly-tying, entomology, rivercraft, fish behaviour and much more. This course  - while continually updated - has been run at The Arundell Arms for over 60 years and has been the starting point for thousands of fly fishers.
