For the beginner, fly fishing tuition will teach you the skills you need to get out there on your own and start catching fish. For the more experienced angler, our tuition will iron out any bad habits and improve your casting skills, you will learn new casts such as the single or double hall cast. Fly fishing tuition will also help you in finding the fish and selecting the right fly to catch them!

Equipment & Set up
Peaks fly fishing own the fishing rights on a beautiful private beat of the River Derwent near Darley Dale in Derbyshire. This beat is completely private and is only available to our clients. You can learn the wonderful art of river fly fishing in Derbyshire and have the river all to yourself!
With the aim of improving and developing presentation with dry fly and nymph, we have been focused on specific and general requirements in technique for several years, particularly on rivers. We now organise guided trips or courses on exemplar rivers throughout Europe. These include the Eden in Cumbria, England; San River in south-east Poland; and the rivers of north-west Slovenia. These are all outstanding mixed wild trout and grayling rivers.
The courses involve demonstration and tuition/coaching sessions, followed by one to one coaching and then free-roaming fishing for guests. Numbers on these courses are limited to four. The courses are aimed at fly anglers who have the fundamental skills and some river experience and now want to explore right to the limits of possibilities. Beginner and intermediate level days can also be organised.
River Eden two day course – Dates available throughout 2012
The European trips are all of one week (six full fishing days) duration, arranged as all-inclusive packages. Numbers on these trips are limited to six.
Slovenia dates available for 2012
San River, Poland dates available for 2012
All of the above will also be undertaken in 2013, with the addition of an extra session on the Eden and new week-long trips to Bosnia and/or Czech Republic.
