Young Persons Fly Fishing and Coaching.
Lake of Menteith  – Season 2019
Fly fishing for trout must be one of the most effective and easily accessible forms of fishing for young people. If you bring a young person to the lake to fish, they fish free (18 and under) whilst accompanied by an adult. Fishing can be recreational or of a more sporting nature.

Weekly Evening Sessions
The Lake of Menteith Fisheries have a fly fishing club called the “Cormorants” at the Lake of Menteith, Stirling.  
Over the last 10 years many of the youngsters attending the cormorants consistently qualify to fish in the national youth squad and have become Captains and Vice-Captains. Some have gone on to take up full time positions in angling associated trades and occupations.
Free fishing and boat handling tuition is given from qualified and experienced coaches and boat persons (Scottish Anglers National Association Level 2 Coach, Scottish Angler’s Leaders Award, Enhanced Disclosure Scotland).
