We thought we would try out the Arundell Armss beginners course down on Devon / Cornwall border. A 4 day course, ably run by the enormously experienced David Pilkington and what fantastic fun it was.

Starting to learn to cast on a lake and progressing through to dry fly on one of the many beats owned by the hotel this is a brilliant way of dealing with the myths of fly fishing. In between the fishing trips, short lectures and demonstrations are given leaving you with a good understanding of all you need to know to go fly fishing.

One of our team really enjoyed this experience and would recommend it to anyone starting out. Hes been smiling about it ever since!
