We are not nearly as fierce as the following may make us seem, and we are not trying to put you off, it's just best to make matters very clear in advance.
Fly fishing and the use of a fly rod is a real skill and we rarely teach children under 14 years.
We find that some under 14 do not have the attention span to take in the information about casting. Some children may not have the physical capacity to use a fly rod. They sometimes get bored and just want to wander off.
However, one of our best ever students was 8 years of age. We have a returning customer who is 9 yrs and a real pleasure to be out with on Dartmoor all day.
Despite what you may have been told, early success does not create a lifelong angler. This picture shows Paul's son with his first - and last - salmon - he is now a passionate surfer !
