Amongst the breath taking scenery of Ladybower Reservoir you will learn the art of fly fishing for Trout with friendly, experienced coaches. You will learn how to assemble your tackle before moving on to casting and fly selection. During the afternoon session you will look at putting all you newly learnt skills into action and have a go at fishing under the watchful eye of our coaches who will always be on hand to help.
The fish in Ladybower are mainly Rainbow Trout and they are renowned for their eating qualities due to the deep fresh water that runs through the valley. If you do catch a fish you will be shown how to humanly dispatch it ready for taking back to the cookery school.

At the end of the day you will be collected and taken back to Tideswell School of Food where you can drop off your 'catch' ready for the cookery session on Day 2.
