A typical guided day would be a maximum of 8 hours, with night time sea trout sessions being anything up to 5 hours (depending on conditions).

Permits prices are not included as part of the guiding fee, but I can purchase them on your behalf (prices vary depending on location).

Of course, certainly the fundamentals of fly casting can be taught over grass. I usually make use of a local park or playing field.

As a rule, I would recommend no more than two anglers per session – especially on rivers. Ideally, for maximum benefit it should be a one-to-one service.

Indeed, if required, casting tuition can form part of your guided day. If you are a complete beginner, some basic casting tuition can take place before we start fishing (usually over grass).

Whilst guiding, I use my phone’s camera – so when appropriate (with your permission) I will take photographs of you fishing and transfer them using WhatsApp.

No problem – bring it along with you and I can provide advise on the day/night. Of course, if required, I am able to supply all the necessary tackle for the guided session, including chest waders.
