Flyfishing Tuition
I can offer help with any aspect of fly fishing whether you are after your first fish on the fly or are struggling to get to grips with buzzer fishing I can give sound, up to date advice to help you improve your abilities as a caster and an angler.

Pike on the Fly
Having first tried to tempt pike on the fly over 15 years ago I have already gone through a steep learning curve in this fast growing branch of the sport. This experience means I can give you expert advice in what can be a very different style of fishing.

Float Tubing Tuition
I have been an avid float tuber for over a decade, using it to great advantage in many waters from small fisheries to huge open lochs and even salt water! I can help with all aspects of this exciting branch of the sport from equipment choice, use and safety to fishing techniques for trout, pike and any other species you want to pursue from an inflatable.

Tackle Advice
Taking a flyfishing lesson before you buy any tackle can be beneficial, meaning you buy the right tackle first time and saving any expensive mistakes. Being in the unique position of having access to almost every brand of tackle and since I have no ties to any companies I can offer unbiased advice to suit your pocket.
