Malham Tarn holds a stock of genuinely wild brown trout, and this course gives you the opportunity to enjoy the experience of fly fishing for them and at the same time learn some of the techniques involved and something of the life of the trout in the Tarn and in the surrounding waters. In general terms, the course is aimed at newcomers to fly fishing who wish to try the sport and other anglers who wish to extend their skills and knowledge. It will give you a broad view of the whole fishing scene so that you may pursue any facet later - however, there is no guarantee that you will catch any trout. It is hoped that the course will enable you to fish more successfully, but above all to offer you the chance to pursue a satisfying sport amidst a unique environment and provide you with an enjoyable relaxing yet instructive holiday. The days will largely be spent fishing with a high degree of individual instruction and help for those new to fly fishing who need to acquire the basic skill and techniques.

Visitors to the Malham Tarn Centre can expect to find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and although not luxurious, the accommodation is warm and comfortable, situated in Tarn House itself and the converted stable blocks. There are four well equipped study rooms, drying rooms, libraries, a bar, TV lounge and facilities for making drinks at all times. In addition to a cooked breakfast and wholesome evening meal, fillings are provided for you to make a picnic lunch to enjoy wherever your course may take you.

Couples are most welcome, even if only one is on the course, for your partner there are some superb country walks in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales or perhaps the other partner may wish to join one of the other courses being run at the same time as the fly fishing course.
