To many, catching wild trout in small, remote streams encapsulates the true essence of fly fishing. 

On Saturday 9th May 2020 an event to help you get the most out of this hugely enjoyable and to some, addictive type of fishing. Based at the wonderful Harp Inn at Old Radnor, the day will be run by five AAPGAI qualified instructors and is designed to both introduce newcomers to small streams and hone the skills of those already with some experience.The Small Stream Day will involve a good amount of one-to-one instruction

Unlike the previous "Wild Streams Day" events, which were run brilliantly by generous enthusiast volunteers, places at the Small Streams event will be limited to just fifteen, with the focus much more on professional instruction.

The morning will be taken up with advice on tackle, entomology, tactics, casting demos/clinics and fly tying. After lunch, the attendees will split into small groups, move to one of the numerous small streams in the area (Lugg and Arrow catchment) and receive a demonstration from their allocated instructor. After that they are free to fish one of the selected beats on their own on or remain with the instructor (in a small group) for guided fishing.

The instructors will finish at 5pm although the attendees are free, of course, to fish on if they wish.

The cost is £70.00 per person with lunch, instruction and the fishing included. Attendees will need to bring their own rods, waders and other kit although there will be some tackle available for those without. 

For anyone wanting to make a weekend of it, the Harp Inn offers fantastic accommodation and food. It is located in the upper Lugg and Arrow catchment and is a great place to be based for a small stream fishing break.


All proceeds from the day after expenses will be donated to the Foundation and its projects to restore and protect the rivers. We would like to thank Jonathan Morris and the other AAPGAI instructors for so generously giving their time into organising and running this event.
