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.

After some discussion Peter and I decided to hire Gareth's services at this relatively early stage of the season to brush up on our skills and learn some new tricks of the trade. We were not disappointed.
Anyone out there considering the services of a guide in the South Wales catchment, you need look no further. Gareth’s whole approach to the session was spot on. He is undoubtedly an expert and has a great deal of knowledge anyone can benefit from. Above all Gareth gave me and Pete the space to try what we’d learned making the whole session relaxed, easy going and fun, and despite the tough conditions Gareth got Pete and I into fish, both on the long flats and in the riffles.

Just received my order of chironomid emergers. Really beautifully tied flies. They look like they will be absolutely deadly!
I’ll certainly be ordering more.

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.

We thought [the casting lesson] was great! Gareth explained everything clearly and answered all questions in a way we could understand. I have never held a fly rod before and now I can't wait to get out there. I will be calling Gareth for my first day trip experience!
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 […]
