The Dartmoor School of Fly Fishing

All of our fly fishing courses take place at our HQ on our private lake or at nearby Kennick Lake in Dartmoor. Our guided days take place on the many small streams of Dartmoor or on the stunning River Teign.

We are proud to have a private lake stocked with hard fighting trout which is a great venue to learn to fly fish. Located in a beautiful setting it is the ideal place to catch you first fish and being private it ensures that you won't be bumping into other fishermen.

We believe in providing the best service possible and will always go that extra mile to ensure you learn lots but also that you enjoy yourself!

All of our team are qualified to the highest standards but also understand the need to teach you in an easy to understand and jargon-free manner. Most of all though, we are fly fishermen and if we are not out teaching or guiding we are out on the water ourselves!

We are able to offer a wide selection of courses and also hourly fly fishing lessons. So if you are just in need of a quick “tune up” we are on hand to help!

The fishing school also runs group courses throughout the year covering a variety of subjects. Please check the site for more details.

If you are travelling from further a field we are able to help organise your fishing and accommodation should you need it. We work with a number of local hotels and B & B's.
