Thanks for a cracking day yesterday. You have taught me a lot and I’m enthused to keep going. I carried on almost until dark and had a couple of bites but nothing more.Roland

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
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
