I am a Yorkshireman born & bred and specialised in fly-fishing for over 40 years. I have been a fly-fishing guide since 1998.
As well as a passionate “pleasure” fisherman I have also fished in many fly-fishing competitions and represented England on numerous occasions, including six World Fly Fishing Championships and six European Championships. In addition I was the very proud Captain of the gold medal winning England Rivers Home International Team in June 2000. I like to feel that I am proficient in all styles of river fly-fishing but especially fond of upstream dry-fly on small streams.
I take an active part in other field sports and I am a keen naturalist with a very special interest in river entomology (for obvious reasons!). I am a published photographer and written numerous articles on fly-fishing, entomology and river management. I regularly give lectures to clubs and societies on entomology and fishing related topics (see PRESENTATIONS for details).
Along with fly-fishing I am passionate about entomology and the protection of our rivers and the English countryside; I am a member of the Salmon and Trout Association, Wild Trout Trust, Grayling Society, Anglers Trust, Countryside Alliance and the Fresh Water Biological Association.
