Members can learn the art of the elegant sport of fly fishing by winning one of ten places for this one-day beginners' course at a trout fishery in Wiltshire.

Vale House Kitchen, the country skills and cookery school, would like to welcome you to Manningford Trout Fishery to experience the art of casting on a day’s introductory fly fishing course, led by renowned expert instructor Neil Keep.

At the lake you will work with Neil to learn all the skills and tricks needed to master this most elegant sport. The morning will be dedicated to learning about the tackle, what it does and how to set it up, plus how to make a fly cast safely. You will be treated to a picnic lunch, and there is also a fishing hut should people want to pop inside for a bit.

After mastering the art of casting and learning about which flies will tempt the trout, winning members will spend the rest of the day fishing - and hopefully land a fair few for the table by the end of play.
