Corporate Fishing Events
Fishing is the perfect choice for a team building outing. Firstly, instead of being stuck in the office you’ll be outside by the lakes in Bedfordshire and surrounded by nature. Fishing is a sport that is accessible to everyone, and has a level playing field. There is definitely an element of competition as teams work together to catch the most and biggest fish! Learning skills such as tying a fishing knot, casting a rod and playing a fish can be very rewarding and it can often be the person that least expects it that enjoys fishing the most! Trophies awarded for most fish, biggest fish and angler of the day.
Children’s Birthday Parties
If you have a fishing crazy child then a children's fishing party is a great birthday idea! No experience is necessary and all fishing equipment and bait is provided. Located in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire and close to Hertfordshire, we can cater for up to 12 children (ages 7-16yrs old), and they will learn how to set up a fishing rod, bait up, cast out and catch a fish! The children will all receive their Angling Trust CAST Starter Award.
Family Fishing Events
We organise family fishing events to encourage families to continue with their fishing journey. Ideal for families that have already had lessons with us and want to continue practicing, but know that help is on hand if they get into any tangles:)! Fishing equipment is available if they haven’t yet got their own gear.
School Enrichment Lessons
We organise fishing lessons for schools in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire so they can provide enrichment opportunities to their students.
Students are able to achieve their CAST awards while learning the basics of fishing, in a peaceful environment surrounded by nature. The lessons would be particularly beneficial to young people struggling to learn in a classroom setting, pupils lacking in confidence and self esteem, those with complex learning difficulties or suffering from anxiety and depression.
Fishing lessons are offered between Easter and October half term.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to have any fishing experience before having a lesson?
No - We offer fishing lessons for complete beginners. Although even the most experienced angler is always learning, so anyone could benefit from a fishing lesson.
Do I need to bring my own fishing equipment?
We can provide all the fishing tackle and bait. However, if you would like to use some or all of your own tackle then that’s absolutely fine.
What are the CAST awards?
The awards set out a series of progressive steps to help anglers develop skills. A new angler can gain a starter award in their first session by identifying fish species & bait, learning about safety near water and helping to net a fish. Keen anglers can continue to work through 6 other levels!
What type of fish could I catch?
We will be fishing for coarse fish. Manor Farm Lakes in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, has a variety of different lakes for all abilities. You could choose to catch plenty of smaller fish such as roach, perch, rudd & bream or wait it out for a big carp!
What fishing methods could I try?
There are many different styles of fishing. You may enjoy using a float or quiver tip. Other's prefer modern day carp fishing techniques. It’s important to understand the wide variety of fishing methods so you can choose the best method to catch your chosen quarry.
Is it safe for children?
We always complete a full risk assessment. The children are taught how to keep safe when near water and how to handle fishing equipment in a safe manner. Teaching the children these habits early on should encourage them to always behave correctly near water while enjoying a healthy and fun sport such as fishing.

Stuart gave me advice on the best kit and tackle to help get me back into fishing after many years. He’s experienced and knowledgeable with tons of tips and tricks to improve your fishing skills. Go on one of his Fishing Adventures… you’ll have fun and learn loads too.
I spent many a wasted afternoon fishing in my youth, and usually caught next to nothing. Now that l'm retired, l decided to take it up again, and so l contacted Stuart. He very kindly spent a couple of free hours with me buying some equipment, and l had my first lesson at Manor Farm. l can honestly say, that l caught more fish with him on that first lesson, than l ever did in my younger days. I've been out a few times on my own, caught more, and can't wait to get back to it once the weather warms up a bit more. Mal Collins
Stuart led a number of sessions with our Key Stage 3 and 4 students this year which they thoroughly enjoyed. The sessions were informative and engaging with Stuart passing on his expert knowledge to the students in an effective way. The feedback from our students was excellent and they were desperate to have another session. I would certainly recommend this enrichment experience for students of all ages.
