Go fly fishing in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire or maybe even combine two classic country pursuits in one day! The pure fly fishing experience is the perfect gift for anyone who fancies a day out in the countryside learning how to cast a line and (hopefully) land a catch or two, whilst the Rods and Guns session adds a spot of clay pigeon shooting to the mix.
The half day fly fishing sessions are headed up by Steve and Ian, both highly experienced anglers who will talk you through what fishing tackle you need and what to do with it. They have both fly fished on numerous lakes, rivers and even the sea and Steve is a Level 2 coach with the National Federation of Anglers.
All equipment and tuition is provided, so if you don't know one end of a fishing rod from the other, fear not. By the end of your experience you'll be fishing like a seasoned angler on this superb private fishing lake, which is stocked with brown and rainbow trout. Don't be surprised if you find yourself hauling out a 3lb trout - not bad for your first go at fly fishing!
If you add in the clay pigeon shoot to your fly fishing in Buckinghamshire, you have the Rods and Guns experience where you will be taking aim at 40 clays as they hurtle through the air at varying speeds and heights, before settling down to a few hours of fishing. What we love about this fishing and clays combination is that it is a most civilised itinerary, starting at 10:30 and finishing around 17:00. A tasty fisherman's lunch can be organised at the local country pub and tea and coffee is available on site all day for free.
