Guiding Days

Whether you're an experienced angler or have just taken up the sport, professional  guiding provides invaluable help when visiting different waters and using unfamiliar methods. Specializing in dry fly fishing for wild Brown Trout on local chalkstreams, James also takes clients to reservoirs such as Eyebrook.

As well as James taking you to some of the UK's most idyllic fishing locations, another benefit of investing in an RMF Guiding Day is the expertise James can pass on. He'll ensure you fish the right spots at the right times with the optimum techniques, while imparting years of experience and knowledge in a relaxed environment.

Chalkstream Day

Based on the Norfolk chalkstreams, the day will start with breakfast by the river with the chance to spot some truly spectacular wild fish as they hold station on the gravel runs. Wading through crystal clear water with only Kingfishers for company, these stretches of rivers are truly wild places. An ideal location to get away from it all and cast to the kind of wild Brown Trout that fly fishermen dream of.

The day includes travel to the river from our fishery.

Available from 1st April - 1st October


Reservoir Day

Eyebrook reservoir is 400 acres of 'loch style' trout fishery nestling on the borders of three counties, surrounded by rolling arable fields, pasture land, spruce, pine and willow trees, you would be hard stretched to find a more attractive looking water.

Whether your favourite way to fish is wading along the banks with a floating line and damsel nymph or out in the boat with a team of buzzers, Eyebrook can provide a spectacular day's sport.

The day includes travel to Eyebrook from our fishery and home-made breakfast and lunch.

Available from 1st April - 1st November
