learn to flyfish on 'red tag days'


Red Tag Days have been running for three years now, and provide an all inclusive 'learn to fish' day out on one of the South West Lakes Trust venues.


These days are suitable for both beginners and improvers, and will take you through casting mechanics, leaders, flies, knots, hooking, playing and landing a fish, a 1 fish ticket and even includes the EA rod licence for the day, courtesy of the Angling Trust. A fly dressing demonstration also shows you how the flies are created!


What to bring - any fly tackle you may have, warm clothes, wellies or waders, and your food and drink. I will supply the rest.


The day runs from 10am til 4pm, and the cost is £35 per head.

nb. The Burrator event on Saturday 1st August 2020 is an evening session and starts at 4pm
