NOVICE ANGLER'S COURSE
Location: Southern Islands, Singapore
The yacht based Novice Angler's Course is catered for keen beginner anglers who want to learn more about fishing out at sea. You will be taught the skills of hunting bigger fish on our yacht where the conditions are much tougher compared to fishing on land as we will be affected by the wind, the current and undulating seabed.
You will also learn how to tie one more advance knot which can last prolonged fight with strong predatory fish. It will be a unique experience to learn something new in the most unusual classroom environment.
