Boat fishing

Choose from a selection of venues including Stocks Reservoir, Malham Tarn, Rutland or Eyebrook Reservoir. I will supply a boat seat and lifejacket to ensure your comfort and safety. We will fish from a boat where, depending on conditions, you will learn:


Straight line buzzer and nymph fishing

Loch style fishing - short line fishing ‘over the front’ of a drifting boat

Lure fishing - pulling techniques, varying the retrieve

Sunk line fishing - getting your fly to the fish

The washing line technique - keeping your flies in the feeding zone

Drift control - how to use a drogue to cover the water effectively

Boat safety and boat etiquette
