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 also 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 in 2000 I took their exams to become a Professional 'National Instructor' in Fly-fishing, Casting and Fly Dressing'.

I joined 'The Fly Dresser's Guild' in 1998 and two years later I began teaching fly-dressing with the Surrey Branch. (In 2014 I was given 'Honary Life Membership' of the Surrey Branch.)

I also taught Fly Dressing for eight years at local evening classes.

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 am also involved with a charity named ‘Country Learning ‘ - talking and demonstrating 'Fly-fishing' to approximately 300 school children every year for the past 14 years. .
