Not usually available on Mondays due to First Responder duties  with East of England Ambulance Service. 
 
                    

     All Fisheries have now opened and restrictions have been lifted for teaching fly fishing. With so many people taking up angling as an outdoor exercise it would be wise to book up in advance for a lesson or two.

      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.

      I would also recomend U Tubes by one of the other instructors at Chigboro - Tim Joyce.

      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. It is recognized by the medical proffession to help with depression and some mental health issues as well as having benefits in recovery from a masectomy.

      I wish everyone well, keep safe and follow the advice from the the government and I hope to be able to teach many of you now that fishing is once more available to us.
