Bespoke Casting Course

Our aim with this intensive casting course is to deliver a series of lessons within a few weeks to take the casting and fishing skills of our customers to a new level. 

After many years of guiding and teaching short casting lessons spaced many months apart, we realised that if our customers were not able to practice or fish as often as they liked we would be teaching the same casts over and over again.

The course consists of 4 two hour sessions usually over the course of six weeks. Within this period we are able to formulate a specific tailored plan to cover everything necessary.  

We take pride in seeing our candidates become more accomplished anglers by the end of the course. 

The course DOES include an element of theory, quizzes and homework to ensure that the understanding of the casting principles is there, along with over eight hours of practical one on one training. 

For the fourth and final session we will combine the casting lesson with some salmon fishing on the river Dee or trout fishing on the river Don (depending on the course)
