Trevor Coxon

I began coarse fishing at the age of six, but now my main passion is fly-fishing!

I started Fly-fishing over 45 years ago, and I have fished most types of trout waters - tiny streams on Dartmoor, the chalk streams of the South, many of the larger reservoirs and some small intimate stillwaters.

In Alaska I fished for five species of Pacific Salmon, Grayling, Leopard Rainbows and Arctic Char.

I have fished for Sea-trout in Devon and Wales, and in Scotland for Atlantic Salmon.

I joined The Salmon & Trout Association (now The Salmon & Trout Conservation.UK) and studied for two years and took my exams with them in 2000, to become become qualified as a 'National Instructor in Fly-fishing, Casting and Fly Dressing'.

I joined the Surrey Branch of 'The Fly Dresser's Guild' in 1998 and taught fly-dressing at evening classes for eight years and I am a 'Life Member'of the Surrey Branch.

I have been teaching Fly-fishing, Casting, and Fly-dressing for over 19 years, in that time I have taught over 500 people to Fly-fish!

I have also been involved with a charity named ‘Country Learning ‘ - talking and demonstrating 'Fly-fishing' to approximately 300 school children every year for the past 12 years. .
