Walton in his Complete Angler claimed that fishing was a life in itself.
See why by learning the principles and skills of tackle, rods, lines and flies.
Practical and demonstration sessions with a fishing trip included.
- Styles (dry, wet, lure, nymph)
- Types (river, lake, stream)
- Gear (rods, reels, flys, leaders, traces, indicators, nets, lights etc
- Establish what you hope to gain from the programme
- Gear (setup)
- Casting (basic skills)
- Trout Food (what they eat)
- Trout Behaviour (likes and dislikes)
- Gear (set up and knots)
- Casting (review basic skills, vary techniques)
- River craft (where to look, what to look for, time of day considerations )
Gear:Check and review your set ups
- Wet, dry, nymphs, feathered lure
- When and where to use)
- Use of accessories – flotants, indicators, multiples
Nets and other “essentials”
Review: Where are we at? Where do we want to be?
- Where Trout lie
- How to get at
- Where to cast
- Sun shadow?
- Wind considerations?
- Trout “beats”?
- Using background “cover”
- This can be arranged to suit the group as a whole, (depending on numbers) or on an individual /two person at once basis
- It does not need to be the last session but could be earlier if the weather forecast is advantageous. It is most likely to be on the Oreti River.
- As the time of year is likely to influence river flows and daylight is great, we should be able to fit in at least one river visit.
