What To Expect

Make your own way to the Tyler’s Common Fishery in Havering for an 8am start and begin your small-group carp fishing experience in London. After meeting your expert instructor and listening to the safety briefing, enjoy a tour of the facilities and learn how to use your fishing tackle and bait.
20 minutes later, take to the water to put your newfound skills into action, accompanied by your instructor. Try your luck catching your first fish, if you’re a beginner, or for more experienced fishermen, ask your instructor for extra tips and tricks to help up your chances of a bite. Throughout the morning, practice casting techniques, learn how to land a fish (once you’ve caught it of course) and, hopefully, experience the thrill of catching a carp – the largest fish in the UK, which can weigh up to 14lb (6.5kg)!

This is a great tour for those who know how to fish and those who do not. My husband is an avid fisherman in the states and had a blast learning to fish a little differently. Joe set us up and allowed us as much interaction as we wanted. My husband was able to cast and set the lines while I took a more leisurely approach and waited till they hooked the line so that I could just reel the fish in. Joe brought everything we needed including chairs so that we could sit down and enjoy the day. We were able to catch a few different types of fish and we never had to wait long before a fish was on the line. Thank you for a great time!

Very nice day. Steve made it info a very good day. i will highly recommend this experience to anybody, also not advanced fishermen. Also will I say that the journey to the place was very easy. Take the tube to the end of Upminster and the tage a cap for 5 min. and you are ready to fish. Steve was very easy to take to and he had som advanced ways to fish and he made all the hard work so I could relax. I will definitely com back at a later time to fish again.
