Half Day Fly Fishing in Rutland

A great 1/2 day experience would recommend to all

- Simon, 24/10/2012

expert-interview-with-rutland-fly-fishing


This week’s Expert Interview catches up (excuse the pun!) with Rob at Rutland Fly Fishing Adventures . He knows a thing or two about fishing and has kindly shared his expertise with us. Read on to find out more about the experiences available…


Q: What was it about fishing that got you HOOKED?


A: Actually it was the 'not catching' of a large pike as a youngster. The pike got off the line but the experience of fighting a huge fish on the end of the rod left me hooked for ever more.


Q:What sets your experience apart from others?

A: It's our passion, which we love to share with our guests. The fact that we take you onto the stunningly beautiful Rutland Water, the largest and probably finest trout fly fishing lake in the UK sets us apart. We aim to give you a great day, a fly fishing adventure and a friendly and helpful experience.

Q:What can customers expect when they take part in this experience?

A: After tea/coffee/cakes we go into our fishing cabin to learn all the skills and knowledge required to take up fly fishing; tackle, lines, flies and of course qualified casting tuition outside. Then use your new skills to outwit some pretty large trout. We also offer fishing from boats on the full day experience which adds to the excitement.

Q: Any funny anecdotes you can share with us?

A: Many lovely guests come and enjoy fishing with us. Such as the 2 brothers each trying to catch more than the other; The highly experienced doctor who just froze when a mammoth sized brown trout engulfed his fly; the hilarity as a father and son hooked a 20 pound pike, the first fish they'd ever caught; talking about ospreys as one swoops in front of the boat to take a trout from under our noses.....

Q: Any plans for the future?

Thank you Rob for catching up with us!
