Living in the beautiful national park of the Brecon beacons has given me the opportunity to fly fish the awesome streams, rivers , lakes and coast line this part of the UK has to offer, especially the River Usk ,the River Wye and their tributaries.
From small wild brown trout and grayling to the magnificent sewin and salmon that run our majestic waters.
As a professional game angling instructor/guide I enjoy sharing these beautiful surroundings with individuals or groups who wish to learn or improve their fishing or casting skills in a safe and controlled environment.
I am a member of GAIA the (game angling instructors association) as part of which I am constantly learning and improving through a cppd program.
I am qualified to teach single and double handed casting and fishing techniques.
I am also an Angling trust Level 2 Coach which has enabled me to be part of a program which has taken Fly fishing into local schools with the help of the Wye Salmon Association (WSA) to educate the younger generation who are the future of fishing.
I have also experienced the delights of fishing other parts of the world such as Scotland for Salmon and sea trout, Slovenia for their beautiful brown and marble trout, and Sweden for their monster grayling. I am always looking to find different destinations to fish anywhere in the world.
I also help local clubs with tuition for their members and organise a number of casting and fishing skills days and fly tying nights for them and anyone to enjoy throughout the year.
I am very proud to be able to provide guiding services for a number of local sporting venues, the most prestigious of which being the GlanUsk Estate near Crickhowell and at one of South Wales’ most famous Fly fishing venues the Gliffaes Hotel. I also organise corporate events, tuition and guiding for The Bear Hotel Crickhowell.
These establishments as well as many others along the Usk valley provide some fantastic wild brown trout fishing and when the conditions are right great Salmon fishing too.
