I'm off on a family holiday this week in the Lakes at Grange over Sands. When not hooning it on a motorbike (with my wife and children in the Nissan "support vehicle") I want to teach my 7 yr old son the joys of fishing. Thing is, I've only been fishing twice and that was 6 yrs ago on a trout lake in Essex. For that caper I bought a fly rod and reel and had a great time but the rod snapped ages ago. This time around, and being a tightwad, I bought a rod on Ebay last week (new) for Â£1.99. Looks like it's a course fishing rod ( I think). The advice I'm so clearly in need of is is it possible to fly fish from a hire boat in the Lakes? Just me, the lad and my father and then possibly hire the gear? If you know anything at all about fishing in the Lakes it would be a start! Or even about fishing. Or fish. I'm an ignorant bugger so please do try to go as easy as your no doubt infiniite patience will allow. Thanks for reading, Richard If there are any trout reading please rest assured I shall in no way be eating you. Darling.
