Looking for guided fly fishing trips in Devon or Somerset? I am a fully licensed, advanced level coach (Angling Trust/Sport England) who can help you to get the best from your next fishing adventure in the South West. I can also offer limited coarse fishing and full day sessions on the River Wye and River Stour at certain times of year (typically summer for the coarse species). Perhaps you would like to learn how to fly fish, or get a handle on the basics of coarse fishing? All ages and abilities are welcome.

I offer half and full days, and often run fishing lessons for beginners and sessions for children. I can also run group sessions and fly fishing corporate days, while many guests have used me as their friendly guide for angling holidays and fishing breaks in Devon and Somerset.
