CORPORATE FLY-FISHING TEAMBUILD OVERVIEW
Corporate Fly fishing Team building aims to provide the discerning corporate client with an life style adventure experience. Whether your company is looking for a fun day out of the office or an objective based team build activity focused on team dynamics or process development. Corporate Fly Fishing teambuild does not require strength or prior experience. It does require the ability to listen and put into practice the basic techniques that will be shared by our experienced guides.
Some of these activities include:
Interactive fly tying and whiskey experience – This is a great ice breaker and is normally done after dinner. Our experienced fly fishing guides will first demonstrate how to tie a fishing fly while a whiskey ambassador matches whiskies to particular flies. Guests will then have an opportunity to try their hand at tying a fly while testing a fine whiskey. Duration 1,5 hours.
