Escape the Rat Race - Try Fly Fishing

We all know how stressful modern day life can be. Traffic jams, underground journeys, meetings and the ever increasing demand to reach targets. Don't you just feel like leaving it all behind?

This is what Fly Fishing is all about; getting away from it all. Worried that you are going to be clad in green, sat under an umbrella and bored witless? There's no need. Fly Fishing has evolved into an ultra lightweight, mobile sport with a definite sense of adventure. Nick Hart Fly Fishing can help you discover this escape from our high pressure lifestyles.

Established in the mid 90s I specialise in bespoke courses designed around novice anglers supplying all the kit required. If you already have some experience then I can further your skills with my specialist courses. Just want to catch some fish? Use my knowledge to access a wide variety of venues and species, many of them exclusive to Nick Hart Fly Fishing. Let me organise the permits, get the tackle ready and lead you to the very best locations ... there is even an airport/train station pick up service if you don't fancy driving.

What can Nick Hart Fly Fishing offer?

There is no doubt that fly fishing courses and the schools that organise them have seen a huge rise in popularity, particularly during the past decade. There is more choice now than ever before; so why choose Nick Hart Fly Fishing?

Because fly fishing is my full time business. It is not the case that I hold down a regular job and do a little bit of instruction during the weekend and I didn't just decide to start offering my services because I had retired on a decent pension. Instead Nick Hart Fly Fishing was created to offer as many people as possible the opportunity to learn how to fly fish for the very first time; or to improve their skills.

To facilitate this process my courses are often located on a stillwater venue which I manage, crystal clear and teeming with hard fighting Rainbow Trout. But this is not a lake nestled on the edge of a major motorway with trains passing by on a frequent basis (yes, such places do exist!), instead the lakes are fed by the beautiful River Exe which forms the perimeter of the fishery. This means that you could be enjoying a stillwater session in the morning followed by a tranquil afternoon of river fishing.

A Diverse Experience

It is this diversity that offers such a unique experience. If you would like to catch a Wild Brown Trout, learn more about Salmon, stalk a Sea Trout in the dead of night or chase down a Bass on the North Devon coast; I can help. And my support does not cease when I say my final good bye to a guest upon completion of their course or guided fly fishing adventure. Many of them become friends of the business, receiving regular assistance by email or telephone when required and favourable discounts through my fly fishing shop. Founded in 2006, Hart Flyshop is also located on the banks of the Exe Valley Fishery and specialises in equipment that I have tried & tested.

Leave it all behind. Experience Fly Fishing.

Above all Nick Hart Fly Fishing is located in arguably some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK, a short cast from the Exmoor National Park. Non anglers are well catered for with a host of activities including horse riding, walking and surfing with superb accommodation readily available to enjoy after a rejuvenating day in the fresh air. Sound interesting?

Please call me on 07971 198559 or use the contact page and very soon I hope to welcome you to your own unique fly fishing experience.

“ What a trip! From the first afternoon, seeing a Salmon on your stretch of the Exe, and even catching my personal best trout so far.  I've always wanted to catch a Salmon, but I'm really pleased I caught it with you . You have taught me very well, and I know that I will always fly fish, I just love it.  ”
