Group refresher lessons

I am going to do a short series of group casting sessions over the Winter.

The first one will be on Sat Dec 18th at 10.00am till 12.00 noon (others to follow in January) meeting at Curley's fly fishery.
These will be for all levels but particularly aimed at all of you who have had your first formal lessons with me over the course of this year.

The spaces on these will be limited and cost £25.00 per person for a 2 hour session and so represents great value for money.

I'll do a refresher on the basics of the overhead cast, then move onto wind direction variations, followed by shooting line and maybe double hauling and distance casting. For any of you interested in river fly fishing then we can also look at slack line casts for up, across and downstream presentation.

Back from Wales

Just got back form a hectic but very enjoyable 4 days in Mid-Wales for the GAIA autumn meeting.
Great to meet up with some old friends form all over Britain and Ireland.
Thursday and Friday spent holding assessments Some were succesful and other will be next time around I am sure.
Saturday was the training workshops - every minute in this environment was helpful as we all strive to improve our performance as Instructors and finally Sunday was the associations AGM.

Back to reality this next week with lessons booked for most days at Curley's.

Wales again

Last weekend in mid Wales was a bit of a wash out as regards the rivers but we managed to find some sport at a large reservoir called Llyn Clywedog. It is about 1000 acres which to put into persepctive - Stocks is 300 acres!!
It is really stunning scenery and well worth another visit in the spring/summer. Good quality fully finned Rainbows.
This weekend back to Wales for the GAIA autumn meeting . On Thursday and Friday I will be assessing some hopeful candidates who have been training for the GAIC - the Game Angling Instructor's Certificate.
Saturday is our main CPPD (Continued, personal, professional, development) Day with lots of workshops going on. Followed by our AGM on Sunday.

Of course all this will be linked to some time at the Bar! - meeting old friends and making  new fishing buddies.

Will be back to some sort of normality next week with more 1to1 tuition.

River Wye and Irfon

I am off this weekend on the stag party of my buddy Stuart Minnikin, we are all going to mid Wales to heopefully do some Grayling fishing on the Wye, Irfon, Lugg etc..
However I am confident that the river will be far too high so I am throwing in the Pike fly fishing gear as well. Am determined to catch something other than a bad head!!

Next week fully diary of bookings for tuition and then would you believe back to Mid Wales for the GAIA Autumn weekend.

After this I will be sorting out some dates for the Winter group tuition programme and some Grayling dates.

"Speak" next week!
