Fishing Tuition & Courses 2020

Download the 2020 fishing calendar here 

 Fly fishing is absorbing. For some, it's the scenery and solitude of the wild surroundings.
For others, it's the anticipation of what the next cast will bring. Hours of tranquillity are punctuated by heart-racing excitement. It's addictive, challenging, rewarding and no two days are the same - everyone should try it.

The Arundell Arms has been England’s best-known fly fishing school for over 75 years. Each year we run a number of beginners’ fly-fishing courses, and also give individual and group tuition from novice to advanced level. We have our full-time instructors, David Pilkington (AAPGAI) and Alexander Jones.
