What you'll do

Private Tuition ideal for novices or anyone returning to fly fishing after a break. We are open from April to October, all the equipment is provided and you will have exclusive use of the fishing along with your qualified instructor..

This is a very practical cday, where we aim to have a rod in your hand and you fishing with confidence in the shortest time possible. Here is a brief, but far from exhaustive list, of the topics that will be covered:

• Selecting the right tackle
• Tackling up
• Casting; overhead, roll cast and shooting the line
• Fly lines, knots and tippets
• Flies and fly selection
• Hooking and landing a fish

Each day runs from 9.30am-5.30pm, with a break for lunch. There is a fully equipped Fishing Lodge and a wide choice of local accommodation in Stockbridge, just four miles away.
Other things to note
All the equipment is provided. Dress for a day outdoors. Experience goes ahead regardless of the weather. Bring your own lunch.

Where you'll be

We have just celebrated 50 years of fly fishing at Nether Wallop Mill; it is quite a legacy. Originally created by the legendary Dermot Wilson in 1968 literally thousands of would-be fly fishers have cast a line and caught their first fish here at The Mill. As far as I know we remain the only place in the British Isles solely dedicated to fly fishing tuition and I am proud to have followed in Dermot’s tradition for the past twenty years.
