Fly Fishing Tuition - Oxfordshire


Recommended Posts

I am currently based in Bangladesh for work. Lots of stunning fresh water fish to be caught in this land of rivers and streams.

I'd be grateful if you could point me in the right direction please. I have been an avid coarse angler most of my life. Two years ago I discovered fly fishing and I'm hooked (boom boom). I have some reasonably good equipment, a good book or two and lots of enthusiasm. However I can get nothing right. I understand the theory of fly casting but try as I might I scare the fish and other anglers.

Could you point me to a fly casting clinic or workshop for doofuses like me please? I would prefer somewhere in the Oxfordshire or London(ish) area please.

I am due to fly out to the UK on Holiday on the 10 July so I'm hoping to take a few self improvement classes. Books don't do it for me. I think I need a teacher. I figure all I need to be a competent fisherman would be to learn roll casting, sweet casting and maybe double hall casting (eventually).

I look forward to your response.

Hi

 

I just started to fly fish.  It is advisable to contact the following people:

 

Shaun Moore at Coltsford.Mill@btinternet.com

 

or 01883 715666

 

http:/www.coltsfordmill-fishery.co.uk

 

Close to London. At most 40 min outside London with a station on their door step.

 

They are most helpful.

If he's in the country and is still teaching you could do a lot worse than contact Paul Arden at paul@sexyloops.co.uk (You could also take a look at his on-line casting tuition).

 

He's a bit different to most other casting instructors, but if his style suits you he will make a serious difference to your casting.

 

I seem to remember he was based somewhere in the South of England but couldn't tell you where.
