2. Experience a day fly-fishing with ‘We Fly Fish’

Many of us are looking to spend more time in the countryside away from the stresses of the recent past. Fly fishing is a wonderful way to do this, and Surrey has several excellent trout fisheries for beginners and more experienced anglers.  Fly fishing isn’t possible with a phone in your hand. You have to be in the moment and totally aware of your (beautiful) environment. Time flies and all thought goes into how the fish may be fooled by a small artificial ‘fly’. Many new fly fishers find the tranquillity, the thrill of the chase and the excitement of catching their fish to be a compelling combination. Fly fishing has sometimes been seen as an expensive, difficult pastime for men of a certain age and background but has become very inclusive now. Nowadays the sport is enjoyed by women and men of all ages and levels of physical ability.
