Boat handling courses

Fishing from a boat on our reservoirs allows you to access deeper water and areas close to the shore you are unable to access on foot, and feel confident operating a boat out on our large reservoirs.

Our three-hour sessions allow you to get to grips with handling a boat, learn more about the engine, anchor, drogue, rollocks, bilge pump and more; and practise fishing on the drift and rudder and take away some handy tactics.

After the three-hour session between 10am and 1pm, you'll have all afternoon to put your new skills to the test out on the water. There's a one fish limit, but you can spend the rest of your time catching and releasing. 

Although this is a two-person course, it is still possible to do the course alone and we'll do our best to match you with someone with a similar level of experience and skills - it's also a great opportunity to meet new people! 

£80 per person based on two anglers sharing.
