FREE Casting Lessons with Guideline's John Milne at the Spring Open Weekend 2024

Every fly angler starts out as a novice, it's a skill and an art form that needs practice and everybody... no matter how long you've been doing it should learn how to do it correctly!
That's where instructors like 
John Milne come into play. Guidance and instruction makes learning how to cast a fly line a lot easier and the tips & tricks that come from instructors like John, stay with us for a very long time.

If you've ever considered trying fly fishing, then John will be here during our Open Weekend to provide you with some casting lessons! As mentioned before John is an instructor, but he is one of the few instructors that holds the prestigious Scottish Game Angling Instructors Certificate (SGAIC). He is also accredited through the Scottish Anglers National Association (SANA). 

Representing Guideline, John will have a range of rods available to cast on the day. If you fancy testing your skills on our Casting Competition ask John for details all weekend and see if you can top the leaderboard for the daily prize or scoop top spot and win yourself a brand new rod!
