Thank you for a most informative and enjoyable day. I will be pleased to receive the casting tips discussed and any other updates on your future courses.Tony
I got a lot out of the session and will be putting it all into practice soon – just booked my next visit to the Usk via WUF. I think you’ve got exactly the right approach for building confidence and imparting knowledge with newcomers to river fishing. I’m glad I made the investment in a day’s guiding & tuition, it has carried me a long way forward in a very short space of time.Simon
Awesome 3 days thank you Frank
My mind is still racing over just how much I learnt over the last 3 days, feels like a lifetime of experience on the river in just a few days. And has it transferred to my fishing!Rob Wreyford

Thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable days fishing, topped off by some great fish. I learnt so much and looking forward to putting it into practice again on the Usk. Might be tempted to try the Cannop Brook also as a little closer to home.
Thanks for the photo’s.Jamie Dobbs
Many, many thanks for a superb lesson yesterday morning. I’ve got the fly fishing bug big time and look forward to our next session.Tim
You may remember that you looked after our fishing group, staying at Caer Beris Manor, last year in early June, the “Old Trouts” – Michael, Howard, Ralph, John, Brian and Mike.
We enjoyed the location and your services so much that I am trying to organise for us to return this year rather than go somewhere else.
