Matt Pierce Fishing


Learn to fish in Hertfordshire or London

Fishing is an absorbing and exciting pastime, connecting you with nature and the countryside. If you learn to fish it could be the start of a lifetime of interest and enjoyment.

As a licensed, DBS-checked fishing coach, I can help you or your family get started. If you already fish, I can help you progress. Anyone aged 6 or over will enjoy themselves catching fish and learning new skills, with screens and phones forgotten (for a while at least).

You can go fishing close to home, at the seaside or even abroad. It’s a great way for family or friends to have fun together, but it’s also ideal if you feel like spending a day on your own.

Fishing lessons – fun and rewarding

My fishing lessons are for groups of up to three people. I teach coarse fishing for species like roach and carp, and fly fishing for trout. All tackle and bait is provided. The emphasis is on having fun while learning the skills needed to fish independently in future.

In my experience, when people try fishing for the first time, they usually enjoy it. Why not give it a go?
