CORPORATE FLY FISHING DAYS
Fly fishing is the most relaxing, frustrating, tantilising, exhilerating, enjoyable sport on earth.
It's the only activity where you invariably see your team gently wind down over the day as they enjoy the concentration of targeting the fish combined with the gentle action of casting the line.
Whether they are experienced or not, they will learn something new and may find a sport that they continue for life.
Fishing is not just about catching fish. It is a very social activity, with elements of comparison and competition for fun and enjoyment. It's great for building relationships and for team building - particularly when anglers bring their catch up for the weigh in.
On a Corporate Fishing Day, you will gather at our Fishing Lodge for tea/coffee and a bacon roll in the morning before receiving your rod, reel and a handful of flies and venturing out to the lakes.
After a demonstration of skills, you will be soon out on the lake, supported by an instructor to catch your first trout. Hopefully by lunchtime, with or without assistance, you will have experienced a fish on the line and landed a trout or two.
Lunch is provided in The Long Barn. You can choose cold options, such as a smoked salmon buffet, BBQ options or good home-made, Farmhouse Food. Vegetarians, and those with special dietary needs can be easily catered for in a no fuss kind of way.
Fishing continues during the afternoon, when the more experienced of you may like to take to our Catch and Release lakes or organise a competition for the Biggest Bag or Best Team.
We normally break at around 4.30pm for afternoon tea, awards and prize-giving, after which your team is free to disperse or carry on fishing into the evening as they prefer.
The day is most relaxing and offers plenty of time to catch up with your clients or colleagues. It is perfect for both men and women of all levels of experience.
