Welcome to the Gareth Lewis Fly Fishing. If you’re interested in brewing a coffee, putting your feet up, and immersing yourself in a few fishing memories and musings, I welcome you.
Hailing from the base of the beautiful and picturesque Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales, Gareth Lewis is a professionally qualified game angling instructor, ex-river fly fishing guide, fly dresser, and writer/contributor to various fly fishing magazines and publications.
Gareth’s fishing is firmly rooted in small stream tributaries and the larger free-stone waters of South Wales, UK, and calls the River Usk his home river. However, he will fish wherever trout are found in running water; likewise, Gareth’s fly dressing matches suit.
Introduced to fly fishing by his father when he was ten years old, Gareth caught the fly-tying bug a few months later. In the thirty-plus years that followed, Gareth passionately guided and taught fly fishing for ten years and continues to demonstrate fly dressing at a range of international shows (British Fly Fair International, Irish Fly Fair, Fly Fest, Welsh Fly Fair, North Wales Country Fair), as well as supporting numerous Fly Dresser’s Guild events and fishing club evenings. Gareth is also a passionate writer and author and writes/contributes to several international publications (which have included Fly Culture Magazine, Fly Fishing & Fly Tying, Trout & Salmon, etc.)
