           CORONA VIRUS IMPORTANT INFORMATION

   

     As a result of the Covid 19 epedemic all Fishing waters both public and club owned have been closed to angling of all types and I am therefore not able to take any clients until the government relaxes the rules.

      For anyone interested in taking up the gentle art of fly-fishing there are many U tube sites on the internet though sadly as a dinosaur I have no idea how to make such new fangled things but there are some very good ones on casting by Hywel Morgan and Simon Kidd from Snowbee Tackle being two of the best in my humble opinion.

      By all means contact me via e-mail for future dates or telephone for a chat about my passion for angling and why fly fishing is such a wonderful way to relax.

      I shall be spending the next few weeks doing bits around the home and garden that I never seemed to have time for before plus I forsee many hours being spent at my desk and vice tying new flies in anticipation of the waters re-opening. The fishing should be fantastic once they do having been well stocked at the start of the year and well rested by the ban.

      I wish everyone well, keep safe and follow the advice from the NHS and I hope to be able to teach many of you when things are better.

  

  Iain Fraser.
