What our Fly Fishing Adventurers Say!
Thanks again for a fantastic day on the lake yesterday. It was informative, well-organised and above all fun! I look forward to enjoying your hospitality again in the future
Just got home from Rutland water 3 days great fishing . Yet again had a brilliant time staying at Rob Waddington’s place, Barnsdale Lakeside Lodge. Thanks to Robs very likeable character and banter we hope to keep returning there for many years to come!
Thank you for a very special day on Saturday – you have a unique blend of professionalism and passion which enthralled us both.
Robs Rutland Fly Fishing Adventures... what a venue... what an experience... what a day... what a man! Thanks Rob
Our day was full of encouragement, genuine delight in our success, and my head is still full of advice, techniques and entomology Yet he still had time to point out the wildlife, scenery, storm clouds, rainbows and what a sunset!
His ability to gauge our ability and to pitch the day at a challenging but successful level was first class. Whether it was drifting big tube flies deep through the main body of the lake, stealthily casting at rising fish from an anchored boat in the margins, or fishing slowly over the shallows, every minute was a treasure.
Some guides can give the impression of making it clear they know it all, being a bit superior but not Rob! Cheerful, approachable and friendly, but behind this incredibly knowledgeable and awesomely talented. He worked incessantly for 8 hours, in conditions at times more suitable to the Fastnet Yacht race, to put us on fish… and he succeeded.
I need to thank you for your excellent guiding and particularly to your attention to detail, to prepare the fish and bag them is appreciated, but to come up with a brace of paracetamol in the middle of the lake is generously beyond the call of duty!
Great days fishing, with a great character.
Rutland is one big stretch of water and Rob knows every inch of it. He got us fully fuelled with a cracking breakfast, then out onto the hunt. Put us on the fish straight away. Didn't stop catching all day. Loved it!
Probably two of the best days fishing I have ever had, unbelievable!
We wouldn't hesitate to return as soon as we are able and spend a full day fishing and stay with Rob. By the way, he offers a really wonderful home smoked trout and scrambled egg alternative breakfast, well worth trying. Thanks for a great time
The best trout fishing I've had this year was my day with you!
You are a gifted teacher Rob. Great fun too!
No matter how many books read or dvd's watched it is simply not the same as having that expert hand.
We all had a brilliant time. I've recommended you to loads of people. I'm going to come back
I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed your coaching, a truly inspirational day out. You have a great gift for coaching. Long may you continue helping others such as myself
Very many thanks for such an excellent day yesterday. You certainly knew where the fish were and how to catch them
