Guided days on the water
As an avid competition angler, I'm well up to speed with the latest techniques, flies and equipment. Techniques such as Euro Nymphing which is the current boom among River Fishing anglers has been used at the top level for well over a decade now!
Knowledge of these techniques and a vast knowledge of various Lakes and Rivers around the UK, mean I do not always guide in my local area. I will often suggest alternative options on locations should the conditions not be suitable at the 1st choice venue. The Welsh Dee is a particular favorite of mine for example, a round trip of nearly 500 miles!
Your day with me is tailored to fit your needs, not mine. Clients are encouraged to speak out about their angling problems, such as losing fish, understanding of watercraft or what fly to use.
There are many guides to chose from, so it is important you pick the right person to help you on your day. Remember, FlyFishNorth is about making YOU put more fish in your net. My knowledge and experience from competing in different countries means I have more than a few tricks up my sleeve to help you achieve this!
