I thoroughly enjoyed my day out with Rob on Rutland. He is an energetic and hard working guide and very good company. The reservoir is a fascinating and beautiful spot with some great fishing and I look forward to returning.

Many thanks for that great review. It's a pleasure to show you this lake. However tough it can be sometimes, it's always fascinating... and it's fishing! Thanks again Rob

Rob made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived at his B&B. The fishing day was a present for my husband's birthday, but I was encouraged to join in too!! It was very relaxing, with a great talk prior to the actual fishing, Rob made it very interesting. We didn't catch anything but that didn't stop us enjoying it. We certainly want to try again!

Thanks for the great review, I enjoyed it too. All good fun, but that's why it's called 'fishing' if it was easy, it'd be called 'catching' Ha ha all the best, hope you can come again, maybe on a boat, to catch some trout! Regards Rob

I was completely new to fly fishing but always wanted to learn and when I found details of the course online and living near Rutland Water I couldn't not give it a go.

Rob is a man with a passion, with loads of experience and with superb, patient tutoring skills, so that as soon as you get there and meet him, you just know that you are going to have a great day. After about an hour of 'classroom' teaching, we moved outside & Rob took us through the basics of casting. I do a lot of coarse fishing & fly casting is a completely different skill but Rob soon had me thinking I might just be able to manage.

After a delicious home made quiche for lunch, we headed out to the boat. The weather wasn't the best but by keeping moving and knowing where the fish should be Rob found them for us and despite my lack of casting skills I soon had two beautiful trout on board.

By the end of the day, with Roy's continuous help and advice, I felt that I was beginning to get the hang of it. I was hooked. Literally. My boat mate's cast was caught by a gust of wind and I found myself with a pierced right ear! Despite this, which was very quickly dealt with, I can honestly say that I had one of the best day's fishing in 45 years of hunting the little blighters and would unreservedly recommend Rob's course to anyone looking to try fly fishing.

Well thank you so much for that fantastic review. It's always an 'adventure' when we go out on the lake, even a pierced ear wouldn't diminish the great experience. It was a pleasure to meet you and to introduce you to fly fishing...there's no going back now! Thanks again.

A simply fantastic day with Rob on Rutland last Thursday. From the first drift to the last we had great sport, Rob's knowledge of the water and tactics was spot on and his enduring enthusiasm and banter made it a complete pleasure spending the day with him. I would highly recommend Rutland Fly Fishing adventures for not only the beginner but also the experienced angler looking to explore Rutland's vast expanses. Thanks Rob, Pete

My wife bought me this guided fly fishing day with Rob for my birthday. I have some experience of fly fishing, but my casting needed improvement. Rob's tuition was so patient and encouraging and, although I still need to improve, I now know exactly where my casting weakness lies. Rob also shared his knowledge of the buzzer fly and the life cycle of the midge, the larvae of which it mimics. Invaluable knowledge in expanding my understanding of fly fishing. I had never a fished a large water before and felt somewhat overwhelmed by the prospect so wanted to gain experience of doing so. With Rob's outstanding knowledge of fly fishing and of Rutland Water my apprehension of fishing large waters is now a challenge to look forward to with much greater confidence. In all I caught 9 rainbows and one brownie, taking 5 away, one of which was on the BBQ that evening; perfect end to a perfect day. Thank you Rob.

This fly fishing trip was a gift from my Sister and family. Both of us certainly had a day
to remember. Although serious, we had a great laugh, losing a few trout, but still came away with enough for our tea for a few days! This all due to the patience and expertise of our guide Rob Waddington. We cannot recommend highly enough. You will not be disappointed! A very happy Dave H.

After searching for ideas for my Fathers 70th Birthday, I came across fly fishing at Rutland water. The description of the day looked good so I booked us in, and from start to finish we found the package exceptional.

All communication was great to arrange the day, leading to the day itself which was unforgettable for my Father and I. Rob has a vast amount of knowledge in his field which clearly comes through in his passion for angling, which was proven when he spotted some large fish moving in the water!

Unfortunately those ones got away, however we both went on to catch some fish and Rob worked tirelessly to make it happen on which wasn't the best of days weather wise. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this experience to anyone, whether you have been fishing before or not.

Everything was taken care of including lunch and even the parking at the boathouse, we returned home with a Trout each which had been cleaned up for us ready for cooking. Rob was also kind enough to forward some pictures he took on the day as well.

Thanks again Rob for a great day out.

Rob did his very best to ensure we got the best out of this experience and was determined that we would catch a fish which we did. Unforgettable.

The trip was a 13th birthday present and I had a brilliant day - Rob was very helpful and shared his tips and knowledge. I caught 2 decent sized trout and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Everyone was friendly and made me welcome I can't wait to get back and hopefully catch some more!!

Had a great day at Rutland Water Fly fishing. Got day ticket from the Fishing Lodge, staff were very helpful & knowledgeable giving us tips etc. Plenty of good places to fish and well stocked. With the reservoir being very big the Day ticket includes free parking anywhere round the reservoir all day so you can keep moving from place to place at no cost.
Very good Cafes & toilets available.
Ideal for Cycling (Cycle hire available at a reasonable cost).
Thanks Anglian Water for a great weekend, will be back!!

That's a great review of Rutland Water and what a great facility it really is. Rutland Water Fly Fishing Adventures offer independent guided trips and beginners courses with our own Lakeside Guest Accommodation on the water's edge. Good fishing!
