Fly Fishing Coaching with International Anglers

Cwm Hedd Lakes Fundraiser

If you’re in the south Wales area and are looking for some fly fishing tuition, call along to Cwm Hedd Lakes on 21st February where a selection of top Welsh International anglers will be on hand for casting tuition, fly tying demonstrations and fly fishing talk.

All proceeds of the event will go towards raising funds for the 2015 Welsh Ladies International team. The Welsh Salmon and Trout Angling Association (WSTAA) is the governing body for game angling in Wales and Cwm Hedd is pleased to be supporting the WSTAA by hosting this fly fishing coaching event.

The event is ideal for anglers of all abilities – from complete beginners through to experienced anglers – who are looking to hone in a specific technique or learn the basics of fly fishing.

The cost of coaching will be £15 per hour for adults and £10 per hour for under 18s and students, with all proceeds from coaching going towards team funding.

There will also be fly tying in the lodge and instruction for beginners on how to set up a fly rod, tie a fly to your leader, and the opportunity to get advice on choosing fishing rods and reels (no charge for activities in the lodge).
