Is Everything
The lakeside offers a form of escapism which many youngsters struggle to find in modern life ...
The value of such escapism in a young persons development must not be forgotten. - Graham Mabey. FLE Director APIOL PDiP
Rewards in fishing can't be guaranteed, there are no short cuts....
You must apply yourself, learn, listen and most of all, believe in yourself.
FLE is all about engaging, teaching and transferring skills ....
If you can listen, learn, record and show patience on the bank, you can also use these skills in other areas of your life moving forward.
Our friendly, skilled and fully qualified tutors pass on knowledge In an easy to understand, structured manner.
FLE's Tom Oliver and Graham Mabey are not only angling coaches but have completed their PTLLS teaching qualifications and are Open Award assessors.
The safety and security of a young person is always paramount.
We are an approved HCC outdoor education provider offer quality experiential education to young people across the South coast.
