ABAS offers three different guided fly fishing experiences:
“Grayling & Grub” Winter Special Offer – just £150 for 2 Anglers: This special offer will keep you and a friend fishing through the frosty months! Five hours guided fishing, plus a break for a cooked steak lunch with a bottle of red wine! Andy provides all the kit, you just need waders and willing! The Kelly Kettle will be boiling regularly and Andy will be guiding each pair of anglers fully throughout the session, fishing for wild Grayling on the prestigious River Dove. Perfect for those who have never fished a river before, and a fantastic Christmas gift for the avid anglers in your life – contact Andy and book now as dates are filling up fast!
Full Day Trips: The full day trip is without doubt the best way to experience wild fly fishing in Derbyshire. Starting at a time of your choosing, these trips give you the opportunity to sample many different styles and techniques over the course of eight hours of angling. With lunch and refreshments provided and free transfers to and from either Lichfield or Burton on Trent train stations these days give the angler the ultimate opportunity to sample fantastic fly fishing in the heart of the UK. With each station being only 30 minutes from Birmingham, 60 from Manchester or 90 from London, a full day trip with ABAS makes accessing our area simple and cost effective. Please note day ticket costs my apply to some waters.
Half Day Trips: The half day trip is ideal for the angler who has less time on their hands or who may wish to focus on a particular technique. During the summer this may be sneaking out from work early and fishing the evening rise for brown trout until dark or maybe in the winter managing to get out at first light for a few hours to tempt some wild grayling. The half day is also ideal for younger ones who may not have the energy for a full day on the river. I supply refreshments and snacks for the half day trips but don’t offer a transfer as part of the package. This is something that can be arranged if needed. Please note day ticket costs may apply to some waters.
