Having been certificated by the Scottish Archery Centre, captained Scotland's largest open amateur longbow club for two years, shot as a member of the English team in the European Field Archery Championships and coached a number of clients at Gleneagles, Dunkeld Park and various private schools in Perthshire, I also have about thirty years' experience in this particular field.

Having caught my first rainbow trout in the company of my grandfather on Blagdon Reservoir in 1968, I've enjoyed a passion for this sport ever since perhaps peaking with a weekly record catch for the Upper Oykel in 1992 with 35 salmon to my own rod. I have also ghillied for the Queen's Secretary on the River Findhorn, introduced a number of novices, both young and not so young, to the sport and taught fly-tying at several prep schools.

Services offered:
1. A 4 hour lesson on a local stillwater fishing for trout
Cost: £50 per person with a maximum of 4 people including equipment hire. You will also need to pay for your own fishery ticket.
2. Ghillying either for trout on a stillwater or for salmon on a river
Cost: £80 a day excluding your fishery ticket. Travel expenses will also apply beyond a radius of 15 miles.

All these packages can be tailored to your needs; the aim is to ensure that you have a worthwhile and enjoyable experience. A non-refundable 50% deposit, however, will be required at the time of booking.
