Development Programme

There are a number of specific things we offer to help members become a successful angler. The cast is the first step and that is why we offer a monthly clinic. The fishing group is open to all those that have attained basic casting skills and we offer workshops at various times around other skills essential for a successful day on the water.

 

Casting Clinics

Improve your cast

Casting clinics are held for novice and intermediate members as required to meet demand from members wanting to improve their cast. This is an opportunity to develop your skills. Usually you will receive one on one tuition from experienced anglers.

Once you have basic casting skills, you can progress to fishing with an assigned buddy to test out your skills.

Fishing Buddy Group

Fish with an experienced angler

Going fishing with an experienced angler is an important part of the development opportunities we offer to our members. An experienced angler will take you fishing a few times specifically with a view to assisting you with the basics of trout fishing including set up, fly selection, reading the water and hopefully playing and landing a fish.

Skills Workshops

Learn and improve your skills

At various times we offer workshops designed specifically around an angling skill. This may be general information for novices or a particular style of fishing such as Dry Fly or Czech Nymphing. We also include such things as water safety and will utilise our own members or bring in specialist people. 

 

For new members and novice anglers this will assist you with everything you need to know including gear selection, knots, finding trout, casting, rod set up, wading and much more.
