The Coarse Angling Experience


Coaching for those interested in returning to the sport

Father and son fishing in the 1950s We know from our experience that many people started fishing when they were young but perhaps in their early teens they discovered the opposite sex or became engrossed in their education and went away to college. Later they started a family, developed a career or for some other reason drifted away from the sport.

If this happened to you and you now find yourself with some more time on your hands, why not return to the sport you once loved? But beware - a lot has changed in the last twenty years and you will probably find that it is difficult to pick up the new jargon and methods.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Why do I need coaching, I used to fish when I was younger?

Answer: Much has changed in the world of angling over the last decade or so - our rivers are no longer the excellent fisheries they were and the location of fish has become more important. Specialist techniques have evolved to combat new problems of 'over fishing' in lakes and many of these lakes are full of carp that can be very 'educated' in the new techniques designed to catch them. New baits have been introduced and fish are no longer accustomed to the old favorites.

We can familliarise you with these new techniques and demonstrate the advances in tackle that you may have missed. We can tell you about how the places you used to fish have changed and we can bring you 'up to speed' on the methods necessary to achieve success.

Question: Can I use my old tackle?

Answer: This will depend on what tackle you have and will in the end be your decision. We will provide all the tackle you need to take part in any course we run and this will be loaned free of charge.
