I am Iain Fraser a licenced instructor for Game Fishing and have been a fly angler for over 48 years on both Rivers and Stillwater’s. I hold a

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

I was a Police Officer for 38 years, and currently run my force fly
fishing section. I won the Police National Rivers Championships in 2013, captained our team at the Home Internationals in Scotland in 2014 and have regularly represented England Police at European,
International and National level competitions. On 5th November 2015 I won the EPFFA National Rivers Championship on the River Ure, North Yorkshire and fished the PAA Internationals in Ireland in
2016. I have been fortunate enough to fish for the England Police squad every year since in both Rivers and Still Water Loch style.
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 a lot of people the art of fly fishing and
during the spring, summer and autumn months regularly voluntarily assist with Beginners Days at Hanningfield reservoir.
