The ratio of instructors was superb. Everybody was very encouraging and supportive. It was great to have patient and willing instructors sharing their vast collective knowledge. The time spent across the three lessons was split up well, with short, informative activities and a good amount of time spent on the water. The evening times were good (18:30-21:30). The fly tying demonstration on the final night was fascinating. (Aberdeenshire FlyFish50 participant)

   The ‘staff’ were extremely helpful and accommodating especially in respect of my two boys. Nothing was too much effort. The group was welcomed to the facility and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.

I have been involved in angling development since 2014. We really wanted to move things up a level and create a structured programme for new anglers in both trout and salmon.  we created Aberdeenshire Fly Fish 50 and developed a suite of resources to support and encourage people new to the sport. It all hinges on our amazing volunteers, they make everything tick.

I have been involved in FlyFish 50 in Aberdeenshire for some time and it is refreshing to see such a dedicated team of volunteers dedicated to sharing their enjoyment and knowledge with new anglers at the multiple annual events

….It’s just a bunch of enthusiasts with a real passion for fly fishing….

FlyFish50 is a fantastic vehicle for getting folk into fishing.  I love the fact that it’s open to all, regardless of age, ability, past experience, background or anything else.  It’s just a bunch of enthusiasts with a real passion for fly fishing who are keen to get others involved and share the benefits of a sport that’s clearly given them so much enjoyment through their involvement in it. Personally I get a lot out of introducing people to the sport and seeing enthusiasm grow as participants learn more about it and all the aspects involved

Being involved with FlyFish50 has been very rewarding! Watching complete beginners progress to become competent anglers in their own right is what this initiative is all about.
