Trout Fly Fishing

If you are looking for a new hobby or pastime why not take up Trout Fly Fishing and join the many fly fishers, that not only get to fish in some of the most beautiful places but that benefit from the tranquillity and pleasure that fly fishing brings. Fly fishing is known to improve your personal wellbeing and health. It offers gentle exercise, relaxation and the thrill of  taking fish - a combination that is hard to beat.

The ability to cast a fly to a rising fish is one of the most pleasurable of pastimes, the excitement of catching that fish is the icing on the cake. The ability to do this often means a stealthy approach and the expertise to gently place the fly in the correct place without spooking the fish.

Fly fishing is often called the Gentle Art and it is certainly not a question of strength but one of technique. GAIA Instructors are trained to highest standards and are all capable of imparting their knowledge of the technique of fly casting so that you can get the maximum from your fly fishing. GAIA instructors can quickly assess your casting action and tutor you how to overcome any minor or major casting faults.

Our Instructors can tutor from individual complete novices through to lifelong fly fishers that want to change style of castings or eradicate a bad casting fault.
