The Deer Park Country House Hotel, Weston, Honiton, Devon. EX14 3PG.

A fabulous 2 day river fly fishing masterclass on the river Otter with overnight B&B accommodation and 3 course evening meal at the award winning Deer Park Hotel, (drinks not included) riverside picnic lunch on each day, tea and coffee served bankside throughout both days.

The course is designed for fly fishers who would like to improve their existing skill set and learn new techniques for river fishing to become more successful.

Over the 2 days the Deer Park resident instructor Neil Keep will cover a variety of methods with both dry fly and nymph through to fishing streamers. Traditional and modern techniques (French leader etc.) will be covered along with presentation casts used on rivers. Rivercraft will be a key element of the course, helping you to identify the fish holding areas of a river and how to approach them. A spot of evening fly tying will be thrown in for good measure.

This will be a small group event to ensure you get the most out of the experience.

All equipment will be supplied for the course but feel free to bring your own. All you will need is a pair of waders, a hat and glasses (Polaroid’s if you have them) and a valid Environment Agency rod license.

Cost for the 2 day event will be just £245.00 per person. (Non-fly fishing partners £75.00 per person.)

Remember there are only limited places on the course so don’t miss out!

£100.00 deposit will be required when booking to secure your place. Refunds on deposits are available as long as we receive a minimum of 10 days’ notice.

To book your place on what’s going to be an amazing 2 day fly fishing extravaganza please call the hotel on 01404 41266 or email:

We will operate a “wash off” policy so should the river be unfishable due to weather conditions we will offer you an alternative date or refund.

Hope to see you there!
