Go to Rutland Water fishing and enjoy lessons with top fly fisherman Rob Waddington at his home in Rutland on the shores of one of the worlds greatest fresh water fishing lakes! We think this has to be a rather fine way to pass a gentle few hours out in the countryside. This half day course is geared to your needs, so if you’ve already had a go and want to brush up on your fishing techniques it’s a great opportunity to learn from a local Rutland Water expert.

Similarly, if you’re a complete beginner and never even picked up a rod before, you’ll be casting out onto the calm waters like a pro by the end of your lesson. Rob Waddington is no stranger to fishing, he has been fly fishing for most of life. He has been fishing in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Russia for trout and salmon and has great experience in all types of angling.

He has lived and fished on the north shore waters of this pretty Rutland reservoir now for over 10 years and when conditions permit, fishes at some time every day. The huge lake measures 3,500 acres with a 26 mile perimeter, but Rob can inform you with his local Rutland knowledge of the best spots on the water to fish and methods to catch trout. There are some big fish here, Rob’s best so far is a 7lb 12oz Rainbow trout caught just outside his house and there’s even a plaster cast of it on display in the dining room!

He has also caught pike to 24lb on the fly whilst fishing from a boat on the North Arm of Rutland Water. On the half day session you’ll be learning all the skills needed to take up fishing as a hobby including casting. This is a skill that when demonstrated by an expert looks so easy and effortless, but when you first try it seems so difficult.

However, with a little patient guidance you should have the basics sufficiently mastered to start fishing from the banks of this wonderful Rutland Water lake, watching your line curving across the water and gently deposit your fly on the very spot under which you suspect your trout to be lurking. These Rutland Water Fishing lessons have just won a Silver Award for the best Tourism Experience in the East Midlands.
