Welcome To Our School

The Northern Fishing School offers a wide range of fly fishing activities whether you’re a beginner, seasoned angler or a business looking for a corporate day out. We cater for all ages, including sessions for school children; which are great fun.

The school is run by Marina Gibson and her team of qualified fly fishing guides and instructors who will be by your side as you pick up a fly rod for the first time or ready to net that salmon you’ve been battling against.

Based at the beautiful Swinton Estate we have access to lakes, rivers and reservoir where you can fish for salmon, trout and grayling. 

So come and enjoy a fly fishing session with us at this delightful Yorkshire country estate.

Marina has recently launched her online fly fishing beginners’ course on the Fieldcraft App which is designed for your mobile or tablet device so you can access the classes on and offline to give you advice 24/7 and off-the-grid.

In 49 comprehensive classes she covers the basics of equipment, knots, safety, etiquette, setting up, entomology, flies, casting, catching and handling fish and more – she will teach you how to crawl before you can walk. This is the first of many courses, so stay tuned for more.
