I have booked a number of guided days as well as a casting lesson with Gareth and have had amazing times. Until my time with Gareth I had never caught a fish in my life.
The skills and techniques that I learned whilst on the water were invaluable to the improvement of my fishing skills; his knowledge of casting techniques, of the local fishing spots, tackle, and flies was excellent. A great day out for both adults and kids alike, is great exercise, and extremely interesting.
I would recommend Gareth to anyone.

Many, many thanks Gareth for your wonderful selection of flies in a presentation box which my wife gave to me for Christmas. I really haven't stopped beaming since I had it and can't stop looking at them, which may make me a bit sad in the eyes of my wife but you'll understand. On the one hand I can't wait to try them but on the other, I'm afraid to use them in case I lose any.
Once again, I can't thank you enough and look forward to seeing you sometime during the new season.

My order arrived today and, I must say, the flies are beyond my expectations. Marvellous work! I will have to up my tying a notch or two to even get anywhere these little beauties.
Thanks for speedy service, all the best and tight lines.

Just sending you some photos of the grayling Henry caught on Sunday using the flies you tied for us, He had over twenty grayling to 2.5lb.!! The killer combination being the Klinkhamer Special (#16) and the Bead-Head Gold-Ribbed Hare’s Ear (#16) fished New Zealand-style! Both flies where readily taken by the grayling at any time! His best run was four grayling in four casts!
We both had a great day which was made a lot easier using your great flies!!
All the best Adam & Henry.

I have been to quite a few of the evenings like the one that was held last night at the Hereford Fly Tying Club. Your one I will always remember, it was that good.
I must say that I found your approach wonderful. The whole room was captivated. A real skill you have there, and I know it has been brought about by hard work.
I said to the guy next to me "When he becomes famous, I will be proud to stand up and say, I knew him when he used to laugh at my jokes!"
Thank you for an inspiring night, and great artistry.
Well folks, it’s that time of year again! The UK trout season is set to end within the next couple of weeks and, as us ‘hardcores’ gear up for the upcoming winter Grayling season, so start the UK’s fly tying shows in earnest. First up (and as the title of this post gives a clue to), is the Fly Fest […]
I posted a couple of shots of a Czech-style nymph earlier today in the Facebook Partridge Hook Forum and mentioned that I fish sometimes them in conjunction with a ‘heavily weighted point fly’ (the lighter-dressed flies taking up the role of middle and top droppers). The heavier point fly holds the task of ‘depth-charging’, allowing the more […]
