Are you looking for a fly fishing instructor or coach to teach you how to fly fish or help you develop your fly fishing skills?  Do you need a guide or ghillie with expert local knowledge of the fishing waters to help you catch your personal best fish?


If you want to learn how to fly fish or want fly casting lessons or fly fishing tuition then your at the right place.  This dedicated page provides contact details of professional fly fishing instructors for all abilities and all ages.

Complete beginners and the more experienced fly fishers alike can benefit from instruction from professionals and if you have never tried fly fishing before then tuition from an expert can be invaluable. Generally within just a few hours you can gain enough information and skills to enable you to cast and catch your first fish on the fly.


Coarse Fishing Instructors

Before you rush off to spend hundreds of pounds on fishing tackle, consider taking a lesson or two with a professional coach.


You may have been watching the fishing shows on TV or seen some anglers sat at the side of a lake or river having fun catching all species of coarse fish or reeling in a specimen carp or predator and want to try it for yourself. The only problem is - you don't know where to start.



Whether you want to learn about coarse fishing in general or specialise in carp or predator fishing, a session with a fishing coach or instructor can put you on the right tracks. He or she can teach you how to fish from setting up a fishing rod to the best bait to use. Depending on what you want to fish for, a fishing coach will advise you on what fishing tackle you will need and how to set it up and use it. Tuition usually covers how to read the water, how to use a rod, whip or pole, float fishing or feeder fishing, types of baits, how to handle and weigh fish correctly and more . .
