TUITION

Fly fishing tuition can be arranged at Grasshopper Cottage and can take place at two levels:

The novice angler: an introduction to fly fishing including how to set up the rod, basic casting techniques, information on flies etc. followed by  time on the lough trying out the new skills.

The more experienced angler: a lesson (or series of lessons) can be arranged with a professional casting instructor and guide and would also include time fishing on the lough.

Whichever level of tuition you require please contact us for details of costs etc. Advance booking of tuition is essential.
