I booked a 4 hour Fly Fishing course with Ben, having been a coarse fisherman for over 55 years, I was not sure what to expect.

Ben is a first class instructor, very confident, friendly and very knowledgeably in Fly Fishing (Which he obviously loves passionately)


I came away with a very good basic knowledge and the confidence to continue it further.

I would recommend Ben to anybody who is looking to try Fly Fishing for the first time or even improve their skills further.


An excellent day, with the bonus of 4 Rainbow Trout (Missed another 4 or 5) with a professional and very nice guy.

Thanks again Ben for an excellent day!

"Had a wonderful day on Lady Bower Reservoir with Ben, his skill and knowledge were amazing even got a huge Rainbow at 6lb 1st one and biggest of my 4 fish catch. He showed me what to do and how to do it he shown exceptional patience when teaching a complete novice. Highly recommended
