Flyfishing on the beautiful River Derwent in Yorkshire

I will regularly update this page to keep you informed of future events and courses.

As well as one-to-one coaching I also run a number of  Group Courses.
Scroll down this page to see course dates and venues.

Do you fancy buying your friend or partner something a little different for their Christmas or a Birthday present?

Why not treat him/her to a fly fishing lesson or a fly fishing course.

Vouchers are available for individual lessons or courses.  See the bottom of this page for further details.

Anyone over the age of 12 fishing in freshwater in England and Wales must have a valid rod licence.   However, for the complete beginner, and only for the duration of the coaching/course, it will not be necessary for you to purchase an Environment Agency Rod Licence as you will be covered under my licence.
