What can I expect on the day

Go to Rutland Water fishing and enjoy lessons with top fly fisherman Rob Waddington at his home in Rutland on the shores of one of the worlds greatest fresh water fishing lakes! We think this has to be a rather fine way to pass a gentle few hours out in the countryside.

These full and half day courses are geared to your needs, so if you've already had a go and want to brush up on your fishing techniques it's a great opportunity to learn from a local Rutland Water expert. Similarly, if you're a complete beginner and never even picked up a rod before, you'll be casting out onto the calm waters like a pro by the end of your lesson.

Rob Waddington is no stranger to fishing - he has been fly fishing for most of life. He has been fishing in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Russia for trout and salmon and has great experience in all types of angling. He has lived and fished on the north shore waters of this pretty Rutland reservoir now for over 10 years and when conditions permit, fishes at some time every day.

The huge lake measures 3,500 acres with a 26 mile perimeter, but Rob can inform you with his local Rutland knowledge of the best spots on the water to fish and methods to catch trout. There are some big fish here, Rob's best so far is a 7lb 12oz Rainbow trout caught just outside his house and there's even a plaster cast of it on display in the dining room! He has also caught pike to 24lb on the fly whilst fishing from a boat on the North Arm of Rutland Water.

On the half day session you'll be learning all the skills needed to take up fishing as a hobby including casting. This is a skill that when demonstrated by an expert looks so easy and effortless, but when you first try it seems so difficult. However, with a little patient guidance you should have the basics sufficiently mastered to start fishing from the banks of this wonderful Rutland Water lake, watching your line curving across the water and gently deposit your fly on the very spot under which you suspect your trout to be lurking.

The full day experience follows the same itinerary as the half day and then adds in a tasty lakeside lunch, followed by an afternoon of fly fishing from the middle of Rutland's finest waters as you head out in a small motor launch. During this session you'll be shown more advance techniques and hopefully be getting the hang of this flying fishing lark!

These Rutland Water Fishing lessons have just won a 'Silver Award for the best Tourism Experience in the East Midlands'. Another superb gift voucherexperience for men available now from IntotheBlue.

The whole day was fantastic. Rob was a brilliant teacher from beginning to end, his way of teaching makes everyone feel at ease. His knowledge on fly fishing is second to none. Even whilst fishing he continued to teach, even though I was not brilliant he was always encouraging. I can't wait to do it again.
Yes, I recommend this product.

As i was a complete novice he explained the basic steps very well so i felt really confident when we went fishing .

Very many thanks for a most interesting and informative day of fly fishing. It was good to put the technique of casting into life. No matter how many books read or dvds watched, it is simply not the same as having that expert hand. I did find, when I started to apply what you had said, in particular the slowing down and my casting became smooth and easy. The other great thing I found was that the day was not just about casting. With enough practice I think just about anyone would be able to cast a fly well. It was all the rest, entomology, weather, fish habits etc that all together made the day.Seriously, thanks for a great day. I am now looking forward to my next trip to Rutland.
