Instructor Profile - Will Shaw

I have been fishing for over 40 yyears, for everything from trout to tuna and from pike to pollack. I am based in Edinburgh, and have fly-fished all over the UK, the United States, Australia, the Pacific, and New Zealand.

As well as being the proud holder of the AAPGAI Advanced Single Handed qualification, I also hold Scottish Game Angling Instructor (SGAIC), and Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) instructor qualifications. I now specialise in fly fishing for wild brown trout fishing on rivers, and in fly fishing for pike, however I can provide in-depth tuition on all kinds of single-handed fly fishing.

I get a real kick out of showing people how to fly fish, and my aim is to help you enjoy your sport to the full. I can help you with your casting whether you are a complete beginner or if you are an experienced angler just wanting to improve.

My qualifications mean that, in addition to having been examined to a high standard on all aspects of single-handed fly fishing, I also have a current first aid certificate, insurance, and a full CRB check certificate.

I offer qualified fly fishing and fly casting instruction in Edinburgh, the Lothians, and across Scotland. As an AAPGAI, SGAIC and FFF certified instructor I can help with top quality tuition and coaching for beginners, intermediate and advanced fly fishers.

I look forward to meeting you.
