Mackerel are a pelagic (mid to top water) fish that are our most abundant fish species. They are very easily targeted by the shore angler. This course will provide you with all of the knowledge that you will require to safely catch and prepare this delicious fish in a sustainable manner. You will be shown different methods of catching mackerel using different equipment.

The course will be split into 2 parts. The first of which will be in a field where you will be shown the essential angling skills in a safe environment and the second will be putting all of that information into practice and (hopefully!) catching fish. As with all of our courses, all equipment required will be provided. You just need to bring your lunch.

This is where we start to drift towards more specialist areas. This course has been designed to get you into the more technical side of fishing, like rig, weight and bait selection as well as water craft. It is essential to either have some good fishing experience or to have been on another one of our fishing courses as this will be less about how to fish and more about how to catch Bass. There is nothing quite like watching the sun set on a deserted Cornish surf beach. We will be spending a couple of hours in the evening talking about the more technical aspects of Bass fishing like making rigs, tactics and fish care. Then onto the beach to put all of this into practice. Due to the nature of fishing on a beach this course is limited to 3 people.

As with all of our courses, all equipment and bait will be provided as required.

Come and enjoy a relaxed foraging walk, lead by our expert forager. We aim to identify at least 10 edibles and will have samples to taste along the way. We hope to inspire you to eat fresh, seasonal food by sharing tips on safely identifying, using and cooking coastal plants, shell fish and sea weed.

The exact nature and location of each course will be supplied a week in advance as we like to vary our rambles based up the weather, the tides and what is season at the time. Rest assured though that each walk will encompass various seasonal foods in a beautiful location. Expect to find out about Mussels, samphire, mushrooms, sea weed, sea radishes and much more.

Bring along some sturdy shoes as the ground we cover may well be wet or muddy.

Both delicious, easy to catch and sustainable fish. This will be aboard a fully licensed and insured charter boat for which we have the exclusive use. We will spend an hour previous to the trip to get familiar with the tackle we will be using and through the trip you will gain the essential skills needed to fish from any, or your own, boat.
