An introduction to Fly Fishing

Fly Fishing is a relaxing, gracious and absorbing hobby for all. With a little fly fishing tuition and guidance, the technical side is explained, the essential fly fishing casts quickly taught, entomology easily understood, and confidence as a fly fisher rapidly installed!

The heart and soul of fly fishing is in:

  • The rhythm of the casts
  • The beauty of the scenery
  • The science of the entomology
  • The intricacy and skill of fly tying
  • The understanding of watercraft and trout behaviour

The real beauty is that you don't need to be an expert in any of these areas to be successful at fly fishing!

You can develop at your own pace in each of the areas above, only being limited by your own choice of what you want to do, and this is where the advantage of fly fishing lessons becomes apparent. By taking a massive shortcut up the learning curve, you can become a competent fly fisher very quickly and develop your skills into the specific areas that interest you.

Fly fishing has several hobbies embedded within it, and by having fly fishing lessons, you can quickly find the areas that will intrigue and enthrall you making this amazing hobby even more absorbing and fascinating.

Tightloops also offer Fly Fishing Gift Vouchers - the ideal gift for the aspiring fly fisherman in your life.
