What my guests say:

“Thank you so much for such a great introduction to fishing! Loved it.”
– Sue and Aidan

“I’m glad to have met a guide with a more adventurous approach to fly fishing. To be perfectly honest, other instructors have been a little prescriptive in their approach. As a learner I don’t want to feel like I’m having a driving lesson. Both days we have fished have met with stunning results!
-Ben C.

“A big thank you for today. Fantastic! Caught some nice fish and species I previously hadn’t.”
-Paul B.
