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

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
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
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
