Tuition is available at Pochard Lake Fishery, provided by our manager Geoff Wood, who is a qualified fly fishing coach licensed by the Angling Trust.

For newcomers to the sport, we recommend our all-inclusive Fly Fishing Experience, which can be either a full day or half day. The exact programme can be adapted to your requirements, but a typical day would start with an introduction to rods and tackle, how to tackle up, and the different types of flies. You would then move on to learning the techniques and principles of casting before getting onto the water and with luck catching some trout.

The Fly Fishing Experience includes the provision of all equipment by us if you do not have your own, dedicated tuition, a two fish ticket for each angler and a light lunch. It can be for one or two people.

The cost of the Fly Fishing Experience is as follows:

Full Day
9am to 3pm
1 person: £190
2 people: £300
Half Day
9am to 1pm
1 person: £140
2 people: £225

If you have recently started fly fishing or are coming back to it after a break and would like some help on a particular aspect or a general refresher, we offer tuition by the hour on an adhoc basis. This is at the cost of £25 per hour one to one, or £38 per hour for two anglers. A day ticket or half day ticket will also need to be booked.

Pre-paid Vouchers: If you would like to give a Fly Fishing Experience as a gift, we would be pleased to provide a pre-paid voucher which can then be exchanged at a time to suit.
