    We are blessed locally with some excellent River & Stillwater Fisheries & I have access, for my clients, to some of the very best of these.

    I have fished since I was 4 years old and it is still the almost child like pleasure of beautiful surroundings & the expectation of outwitting our fastest & most beautiful freshwater predators that takes me back.
    Fly Fishing started some 2000 years ago as a pastime & recreation. It exists for the purpose of giving pleasure & fun rather than filling a larder. My tuition sessions are designed to be enjoyable with a friendly helpful atmosphere. So if you would like to try “Hunting with a Fishing Rod” then you & I will get along just fine.
