I was a Police Officer for 38 years, and currently run my force fly
fishing section. I won the EPFFA National Rivers Championships in 2013 and in 2015. I captained our England team at the PSUK Home Internationals in Scotland in 2014 and have regularly
represented EPFFA England at European, International and National level competitions.
During my working life I have been an instructor in law, firearms, First Aid
and Child Protection which after retiring I thought why not use the skills learned at work and my passionate hobby to become qualified to instruct professionally, attended a course run by the Angling
Trust under Sport UK and the Angling Development Board at Moulton Agricultural College in Northampton and qualified as a Game Angling Instructor in November 2014.
Over the years I have taught many people the art of fly fishing and
during the spring, summer and autumn months regularly voluntarily assist with Beginners Days at Hanningfield reservoir.
