A Reel Adventure – fly fishing in West Sussex

West Sussex and Hampshire have some of the best fly fishing experiences in the World – due to our clean, chalk-fed Downland streams and rivers. The lakes and rivers are brimming with Trout and other freshwater catches waiting for the skilled fly fisherman to lure and hook.

Fly fishing courses are amazingly popular with about 1,000 here in the UK. The best news is that you can fish wherever there is water – and you don’t just have to go after trout.

It doesn’t mean that you will be able to catch a fish first time, although you may be lucky…just getting your fly to land anywhere close to where you thought it might could be challenge enough! – but learning a new skill in beautiful countryside could have you hooked for life!

Courses can include how to tie knots, make flies and lures, how to cast through to more advanced techniques. Contact the local fisheries for more details of what’s on locally and when.

Please note:  Fishing Licences are necessary – there is more information from here: https://www.gov.uk/fishing-licences/when-you-need-a-licence. You can get a Licence from the local Post Office – costs here: https://www.gov.uk/fishing-licences/buy-a-fishing-licence
