Fly Fishing in the Cotswolds Fly Fishing in the Cotswolds Fly Fishing in the Cotswolds

The top choice for fly fishing in the Cotswolds

We at Go Fly Fishing UK have a decade of experience in providing top class guided fly fishing days and private fly fishing tuition days and half-days based at a wide range of excellent Cotswolds Trout fly fishing waters.

The Cotswolds is a very picturesque area of limestone upland in southern England, around 90 minutes travel time west from London. Its rivers have some similarities to the rich chalk streams of Hampshire and the River Coln (pictured above) provides notable dry fly and nymph fishing for Brown Trout as well as holding a good head of sometimes-large Grayling. 

Fly Fishing in the Cotswolds

The Cotswolds contains countless lakes and some of these, with nutrient rich spring fed water, are given over to providing excellent Trout fly fishing in peaceful scenic settings. We run full and half-day private one-to-one fly fishing lessons for beginners at some super Trout fly fishing lakes in the Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire Cotswolds, situated near to the towns of Cirencester, Swindon, Lechlade, Chipping Norton and Oxford. 

If you fancy making your fly fishing day part of a short-break or holiday in the Cotswolds then we can advise you on the best accommodation options. These including manor house hotels, country hotels, inns and bed & breakfasts, each within walking distance of very good fly fishing.
