Rainbow trout and brown trout inhabit a series of lakes – from small to over two hectares. The fish vary in size from 1kg to over 4kg The fishery is spring-fed.

The fishery is an ideal setting to test newly learnt skills and casting techniques, so that when you are challenged by a slurping brown trout in the wild, you will have the confidence to make that perfect cast.

Dear Mike,

Well the good news is that Clare and I stopped off at Brumbys on Sunday and both of us thought that our casting had improved considerably. Clare in particular felt that she was in control and that she was casting further with more accuracy and less fuss.

We both really enjoyed last Thursday. We really appreciated the patient way that you talked us through everything from getting the best out of our equipment to releasing fish. While it is always a fabulous moment when you see a fish take a fly, it is just as informative to see a refusal.

What was special was having an expert commentary all the way through the process. We learnt so much in one day and had great fun, we would like to get back in touch. A day on Meadowbank or Bronte is a tempting prospect.

Cheers, Hamish
