Bob and Vera Carlson – Fly Fishing Tuition
Bob and Vera Carlson run a popular Fly Casting Instruction and Fly Fishing Tuition business based in Kendal, South Cumbria on the edge of the beautiful English Lake District. We are both fully qualified fly casting instructors holding the single handed qualification from The Game Angling Instructors Association GAIC and Vera also holds the APGAI which is the Advanced Professional Game Angling Instructor qualification and is the highest casting qualification awarded by GAIA.
We teach single handed fly casting and fly fishing instruction from beginners, improvers and also advanced casting techniques.
All fly casting and fishing tuition is given on a one to one basis to ensure that you get the most benefit from your session but we are happy to include a couple of friends, colleagues or relatives at a small additional cost.
The tuition is given in a friendly, relaxed manner in a safe environment and is geared to your specific needs with the emphasis on having fun while learning. Waters used are located in South Cumbria and North Lancashire and are within easy access to the M6 Motorway.
