GMP Sports & Social Club Fly Fishing Section Open Day

Wednesday 18th March 2020

Hosted by the GMP Sports & Social Club Fly Fishing Section at Ladybower Reservoir in collaboration with Orvis Bakewell, this fly fishing open day is for anyone who has never tried fly fishing before and would like to have a bit of fun giving it a go however we also welcome any inexperienced fly fishermen (and women) that would like a bit of basic guidance to help them improve.

This event is not only open to all serving and retired GMP officers and staff, but also their family and friends. There are two sessions to choose from, either 0900-1200hrs or 1300-1600hrs, and there are twelve places available at each session which will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

You will be fishing for rainbow trout and those who catch may take their fish away with them to be eaten. All fishing tackle will be provided and you will receive guidance from a team of instructors enthusiastic about introducing new people into the sport of fly fishing.

All you will need to bring with you is a pair of sunglasses and a baseball cap (standard fly fishing PPE) and wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear (you will not be entering the water).

Participants must also be in possession of a valid fishing licence for the day of the event (trout and course). If don’t already have a fishing licence a single day licence (£6.00) can be purchased online from www.gov.uk/fishing-licences

After each session information packs containing a basic list of equipment needed to take up fly fishing, details of where you can fish locally and money off vouchers to help you purchase equipment from our local tackle shop will be handed out (free of charge) to those who would like them.
