Fly fishing lessons are given on the Leconfield Estate’s part of the river Rother in Petworth. This section is about three miles long, most of which is double banked. It has a natural head of wild brown trout and a run of sea trout as well as grayling and chub. The Estate stocks the river annually with about 1,200 mature trout. The estate ponds are also available.

A course of three fly-fishing tuition consists of three sessions each lasting about 2 - 2½ hour. Spreading them over a few weeks gives the participant an opportunity to fish the river in various styles and in different conditions.
I cover all aspects of fly-fishing for trout and this is by far the most popular course giving a real introduction to fly-fishing.  Many of my clients’ re-book for further and more advanced fishing tuition.

Single lessons may be booked individually to suit individual requirements, such as checking out casting faults with the use of a single or double-handed rod, knots, river craft and the rudiments of salmon and sea trout fishing.

Fees for a single lesson are £85 with an additional £40 (reduced to £20 for children) for any guest a client wishes to invite.
Fees for a block of three lessons is £195 with an additional £30 (reduced to £20 for children) for each guest per lesson.
Tackle can be provided at no extra charge. Dogs are not allowed
