Salmon Courses In 2018 Your Testimonials

During the year we ran 3 courses on the river for Salmon improvers , beginners and many casting courses on our lakes. Your feedback has been excellent!

“Thanks Barry and John we thoroughly enjoyed the 2 days in October. Patience and kind words allied to excellent tuition meant we really could cast and to see Danny hook and land a 25Lb Salmon was truly thrilling” Sarah T

“Tom my son managed to hook a real salmon ! Sadly it got off but he is a convert it was his first time salmon fishing with his Dad and we are both coming back in 2019 in June !” Neil C

“The three brothers had never fly fished before but Barry did an excellent job they were addicted so much so we had to haul them from the waters for lunch. John provided a lovely lunch with all the trimmings” Rebecca S
