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 →
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

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.

People often call themselves experts, when sometimes they just aren’t. Frank is a TRUE expert. Not only does that man know the River Usk and Wye like the back of his hand – the man thinks like a fish! He is a passionate fisherman that lives and breathes the sport. Frank is talented at finding fish but more importantly he knows how to guide. He knows when to step back (when you cast the 3rd fly into the bush behind you), he knows when to offer advice, he knows when to step in and importantly,…Adam Stafford via Email
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
Frank, thank you for a fascinating and enjoyable weekend
