Recent years have seen difficult conditions for the fly angler what with the dry, droughty conditions of 2011 which stayed with us right up until late April of 2012 and were then followed by the unprecedented wet summer of 2012. … Continue reading →
Many thanks for a great day’s fishing. I learnt more on Saturday than I have watching lots of videos and reading lots of books. Fishing those turbulent pots and runs was the first lesson. I would have passed these over after a cast or two and thought them impossible to fish. The French nymphing technique is something else! It looked so easy when you fished it, but lots more to learn as I discovered on the Sunday. I caught one nice fish about a pound and then lost a belter in a heavy …Steve Percy via email
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
Had a day’s tuition today with Frank Williams learning the techniques of French Nymphing, six of us had a great day and we caught some Grayling, Frank is a very good teacher he knows his stuff.Alan Stonelake
Hi Frank. Many thanks for Saturday, it was an excellent day and a very decent result; my best brownie so far. I look forward to seeing the photos; let me know what you thought of the upper stretch.

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
Many thanks for an excellent weekend of fly fishing at the Gliffaes. I really learned a lot from your instructions, and would also like to thank you personally for your patience in sticking with me during the Sunday morning… and changing the fly weights until I eventually caught a fish.
As you said at the time – you will always remember your first – and I will certainly never forget that splendid trout!
It was also excellent that you were able to take a few photos – it wa…Andy Parrot
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
