AT LEAST 2 MILLION people go coarse fishing in England and Wales every year, and the easy access to this discipline is perhaps why it continues to be the most widely participated sport in the UK.
Whether you set your own goals or compete against others, we can help you to develop the skills to take on the challenges of commercial lakes, canals and rivers etc.
In recent decades the number of newly created commercial match lakes has increased considerably, so you are likely to have one very close by. They offer easy access and sport for the pleasure angler, as well as a stage for serious competition angling.
The desire to catch more and bigger fish means that almost anyone can go fishing with the reassurance that they stand a good and realistic chance of catching something big. It also means that we can offer coaching to any ability and age in a safe and comfortable environment.
All of the fishing is on a catch and release basis and the welfare of the fish and other wildlife is of absolute paramount importance. This demands a reasonably good technical understanding of what tackle to select; how to set up; as well as how to play, land and handle the fish correctly once hooked and banked.
We offer expert coaching and advice for each and every aspect that empowers beginners to take confidence in a life-long hobby or sport, as well assisting the much more competent anglers to raise their skills and understanding to levels that are rarely preconceived.
The competitive aspect demands a thoughtful and innovative approach which has resulted in a rapidly evolving set of skills to develop, and a whole new approach to equipment and tackle. We offer excellent refresher coaching for anglers that leave the scene for a few years, or want to gain new skills using the latest methods that have emerged from the manufacturing of lighter carbon poles and converging carp fishing industry.
Money invested in coaching is quickly recuperated by having the knowledge for informed purchases of equipment, bait and tackle, as well as the skills to pick up a few pounds in local matches if competitively minded! Our coaches also specialise in river and canal fishing which in recent years has seen a resurgence in popularity as anglers look for their next challenge.
