Lucy Bowden, Fishing for Everyone

A qualified Level 2 UKCC Game Game Angling Coach, Lucy is the youngest qualified licensed female level 2 Game Angling Coach in the UK. Lucy believes that anyone can fish, no matter what your age, race, gender or ability and it is her aim to encourage more people into the sport, in particular more females.

Lucy offers coaching lessons catered specifically around you, from learning how to set up your fishing tackle to basic single handed rod casting techniques and brushing up on your skills. Sessions may also cover knots, watercraft, fish health, and your safety when on the water. Lucy will offer helpful fishing hints and tips throughout the session.

Sessions may be attended alone or in pairs. One on one sessions are great for individuals looking to learn how to master basic fly casting and have any fishing related questions answered in a private and uninterrupted setting or, bring a friend along and join in the learning fun together!
