I hold the current SGAIC Salmon Double Handed casting qualification. I hold First Aid, Child Protection and CRB Disclosure Scotland certificates. I am also licensed and insured by SANA.
I am based in the River Awe area of Argyll and available to give Spey-casting tuition on the river. I can supply equipment if required and able to travel to other locations if necessary.
I have had the good fortune to have fished for Salmon all over the UK and abroad including the Kola Peninsula Russia, Iceland and recently Norway. I have also fly fished in various saltwater locations both around the UK and tropical destinations including Mexico, Mauritius, Tobago and many more.
I have recently returned back to Scotland from South East England where I was an Instructor / Sales advisor with ‘Sportfish’. The Sportfish Fly fishing school included daily casting tuition (our target was 1000 hourly lessons per year) double/single handed casting and numerous in-house events. In addition I was involved with the organising and hosting of residential fishing/casting courses in various destinations including beats on the Tweed, Towy, and Tyne. I am still active in hosting their residential courses and open weekends.
My experience with Sportfish has given me an in depth knowledge of both casting instruction at all levels and of tackle and equipment, therefore enabling me to provide high quality casting tuition for both beginners and advanced  together with expert advice on tackle/equipment.
I am also a member of the prestigious ‘Scott Mackenzie’ Pro Team and use Mackenzie rods and lines for the majority of both my tuition work and personal angling.
I look forward to hearing from you.
