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
Well done chum! Well done chum!I give a lot of stick to fishermen on YouTube , who dont know what they’re doing, but that was brilliant-fish returned quickly, even though it was perfect eating size!- ie. put back big hen fish Please watch all young would-be fishermen-great example of how to fish and treat fish.Rierie via Youtube Channel
Hi Frank, thanks again for such a great day mate I’m itching to get back maybe Sunday.Craig Thornburn
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.

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
