With the vast amounts of blogs and other material out there in the world wide web, covering all aspects of flyfishing, we aim to make ours a little different, more focused if you like.

Freshwater fly fishing is not just trout fishing. We target as many species of fish possible in our local waters , Urban Fly Fishing so to speak. We agree that the trout is a great fish to target however we would love to get you into a Small Mouth Yellowfish or Large Mouth Yellowfish, Carp, Bass, Kurper and Barbel on your fly rod as well. With all these species now available to you seasons are no longer an issue, when the waters are too warm for the trout it’s a sure thing that the Yellows and Carp are on the bite. There are many waters close to your doorstep to fish, and most likely you are unaware of them.,We would like to discuss this with you and get you fishing as much as possible.
