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.
