Why book with us?

We can advise you exactly where, when and how to fish to maximise on your enjoyment and on your catches. All our services are tailored to your specific wishes and requirements.

Benefit from our extensive experience and knowledge of the UK fly fishing scene, contacts and locations. The Go Fly Fishing UK guides and instructors are all very keen fly fishers. Whilst we have enjoyed fly fishing in many locations around the world we know that the UK has many world-class countryside fly fishing locations. We want to be out there ourselves, and do so on every possible occasion. And we want to share our knowledge and love of our favourite UK fly fishing locations with you.

'The Field' magazine has listed Go Fly Fishing UK as one of the Top 10 fly fishing schools in the UK.

We have many years experience of organising and participating in fly fishing in the UK and that means we know well the places we recommend, be it areas of the country, fly fishing waters, hotels, pubs, etc. It’s not sufficient just to know which districts in the UK are the best fly fishing locations. To make the very most of your valuable vacation time and to go home having had a thoroughly enjoyable time and caught some great fish, you need to know exactly where to go. Which are the best stretches of the best waters (and how do you get access to them), which are the most scenic fishing locations, the friendliest pubs, the best restaurants, etc… Our personal experience can take you to these places.

You also need to know when to go. Many locations have best times of the year to fish. For example some waters are great in early and late season but poor in the summer, whereas others are at their best in the summer. Don’t forget that the UK has excellent winter Grayling fishing. We know the best times from many years of personal experience.

Access to the best UK fly fishing locations is not easy. The majority of UK waters are private and the unprepared visitor will not get to fish in these places. Through our knowledge and contacts we can provide you with access to the best fly fishing locations so that you make the very most of your limited vacation time.

The UK has excellent fly fishing guides. Not only will they ‘put you onto the fish’ and show you how best to catch them but they will also add a real local dimension to your fly fishing experience.

Happy Clients

Many thanks for making my clients day at the River Test such a memorable experience for them. They thoroughly enjoyed it. Your personal touch in terms of arranging everything made all the difference and your passion for the sport made it a unique experience. I hope that we will have the opportunity to work together again in the future.
Lisa-Jane Ryan, Events Manager, Aura - client British American Tobacco, River Test

Just a quick line to thank you for today. Your knowledge and patience was very much appreciated and I had a fantastic time on the River Test. I will definitely be doing it again.
Ben Deane, Guildford


I would just like to say that I thought that you were incredibly patient, extremely informative and an excellent tutor and I would have no hesitation to recommend you to any would be fly fisherman! The days tuition in the Yorkshire Dales was a Christmas present from my family and I can honestly say it was the best present I've ever had!
Neville Dodsworth, Skipton


Thank you very much for a fantastic days fishing on the River Test. I look forward to fishing with you again soon.
Oliver Cox, London


I thought I better let you know how much we both enjoyed our 3 days fishing with you in the Yorkshire Dales. To be honest, having spent time elsewhere with a different guide service we approached our visit to you with fairly low expectations. We were therefore delighted to be proved wrong.
Douglas & Robin Wise, Hertfordshire


Just wanted to say thank you for giving Matthew such a fantastic day fly-fishing yesterday. It was everything he'd hoped it would be AND MORE! He and Stuart had such a fantastic time with you at the Frensham Trout Fishery.
Amanda Green, London


Just a quick note to thank you for a superb day. On Monday morning (in London!) I found myself longing to be back on the Yorkshire River Ure - does this mean I'm hooked? - I'm guessing so.
Tim Cooke, Shrewsbury
