"Fly Fishing is a passion that I love. I have fished for as long as I can remember and have been fortunate in having fished all over the United Kingdom and abroad for a variety of fish.

I qualified as an instructor in 1986 in the disciplines of  Salmon, Trout and Fly Dressing and get great pleasure in introducing people to this wonderful sport and recreation"
