Excellent fun, our group of 6 was 20’s to 60’s, go at your own pace but plenty of space to get an adrenalin rush if that’s what you want. Highly recommended and excellent instruction from Andy.More

Sorry, Not really - but you could learn to Fly Fish there. It's a great sport, the Fishery is a very beautiful, peaceful place and they have excellent fly fishing instructors. Best way to wait for an Osprey.
