Fancy a day afloat searching for feeding rainbows?

I will help you adapt your techniques to suit the ever-changing conditions. You could find yourself casting a single dry fly to raising fish, straight-line nymphing or searching the depths with various density fly lines. Whatever it takes, I’ll do my utmost to help you catch fish.

If you’d prefer to fish from the bank, we can spend our time fishing known bank-side hot-spots, if necessary wading to achieve more distance.

Waters: Llandegfedd (Mid Wales) and Llys-y-Fran (West Wales).
