Recently voted ‘Best Fishing School in the UK’ by The Field magazine.
The Arundell Arms Hotel has two full-time, professional instructors - David Pilkington and Alex Jones. They both hold the prestigious AAPGAI (Advanced) qualifications in single and double-handed fishing disciplines and have taught literally thousands of people to fly-fish over many years.
We control the fishing rights on seven different rivers, the Tamar and six tributaries, all natural spate rivers draining the moors and high ground of the Westcountry. With private fishing on a total of 20 miles of river bank, you will have up to a mile of water to yourself for the day. Please note that this is very important when learning to fish – we do not teach on club waters where you have to share your stretch of river with a number of other anglers.
Learn to Fish at the Arundell Arms with David Pilkington & Alex Jones - Fishing Tuition can be arranged for individuals and groups of up to 10 anglers for both residents and non-residents of the hotel. We also run regular 1, 2 and 4-day courses for beginners, and in salmon and sea trout fishing. David and Alex cater for all abilities from total beginners up to experienced anglers looking to improve and learn advanced techniques. Specialities of the house are lessons in: beginner’s trout fishing, river fishing techniques for wild trout, night fishing for sea trout, modern spey casting and salmon fishing, estuary and open-coast bass fly fishing and much more.
Westcountry River Fishing Lessons at Arundell Arms - All tackle and wader hire is included in the cost of tuition, and we have a comprehensive tackle shop on site. We also issue EA rod licences (a legal requirement) at the hotel, which saves time and frustration! We teach fishing. We run courses for beginners. We sell tackle, give advice and provide maps of our fishing. It is all this and more which makes The Arundell Arms a real fisherman’s hotel.
“From the very beginning of the fishing season I’ve always felt that I’ve been talking to knowledgeable friends rather than instructors”. Michael Haines
