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.
