Tightloops Fly Fishing


Tightloops is the total fly fishing experience company for those holidaying in Hampshire and looking to experience a hobby Hampshire is world famous for. Established for over ten years and having completed over 3,500 lessons/courses, we are the most experienced and professional fly fishing experience company based in Hampshire.

Our Instructors are qualified to the highest standard ( AAPGAI ) and are fully first aid trained, CRB checked and insured. We can offer all day experience packages on local stillwaters for total beginners, or for the more experienced fly fishermen, services from casting tuition to a days guided fly fishing on some of the most famous fly fishing rivers in the world including the rivers Test and the Itchen, in total over 70 beats on 15 different rivers.

We supply all the equipment and can also provide transportation to and from the fishing if required. Prices are subject to variability depending on where you want to fish so check the website for the latest prices, but the prices quoted are all inclusive, there are no hidden extra costs, all you need to do is dress for a day outside according to the weather, and bring a packed lunch.

Please note the prices quoted are for a full day of one to one tuition. A lot of outdoor experience companies quote cheaper prices, but these are for group events and as a result the prices can be misleading. We don't do group events unless specifically requested by an already established group (friends/family) and in that case we reduce the price per person accordingly. We don't feel group events are the best introduction to fly fishing as to pay for a days tuition, and then due to the nature of the hobby be left on your own for most of the day when the instructors help the other participants, isn't the most enjoyable introduction to any hobby! And that's what we strive to provide, a thoroughly enjoyable experience learning a fascinating hobby, where you're having so much fun you don't even realise you're learning, and which leaves you with enough confidence and ability to then go off and take up fly fishing as a hobby.

Please be aware that due to the bankside terrain there may be some restrictions on the physically impaired, and due to the nature of the sport under 12s are not recommended unless they are accompanying by a fishing adult. Costs do normally include taking two trout per person home with you, but, you have to catch them first! To confirm suitability prices or availability please use the contact page on the website.
