Current Membership

Total Beginner

It makes sense to learn the correct techniques from day one.  Our GAIA instructors love nothing more than introducing people to the sport.

Stepping Up Your Game

Perhaps you fancy trying something a bit different?  How about targeting a new species or learning a new technique?

Experienced Anglers

Iron out a casting niggle or do some fine-tuning before an upcoming trip.  Book a session with a GAIA instructor and save fustration and wasted time.

The best way to Learn is to DO!

The fastest route to the water is to get in touch with one of our friendly instructors. Send them a message or pick up the phone and have a chat.

Find someone local or near to your preffered fishing destination.
What are you waiting for?

"GAIA is a huge network of friends and associates with a shared passion.  We love fishing and we love teaching fishing. 
We're happily in a process of continual development, in terms of our skills and knowledge.  We communicate and we share, no one in GAIA ever stops learning."
