About Me!

 Welcome to 2021 and a Happy New Year to Everyone and let us hope this yerar is better than the last one.

I am Iain Fraser a licenced instructor for Game Fishing and have been a fly fisherman for over 48 years on both Rivers and Stillwater’s. I hold a L2 CCA  Certificate in Game Angling, Licenced by the Angling Trust/ Sport UK to coach all age groups. Licence No. 1274 and Angling Trust Member No 73133. I am DBS (formally CRB) higher checked with regard to children and vulnerable adults. I am a First Aid at Work and FPOS Trainer and Assessor. I also hold a D32/D33 certificate under Edexcel. I am currently a Community First Responder with East of England Ambulance Service. 

            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.

Not usually available on Mondays due to First Responder duties  with East of England Ambulance Service. 
 Although all my National and International competitions have been postponed until 2022  
The good news is that fly fishing and my teaching is  allowed again,
  

                  CORONA VIRUS IMPORTANT INFORMATION   

     Most lakes 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.

      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 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.
