Have just two of the best days you could ask for, fly fishing with Stuart. I would consider myself very much a novice (and Stuart might say I still am), but with Stuart’s teaching style, and manner, I felt like I had been fishing for years. What an incredible treat to be on the River Eden and River Tees, a beautiful and unspoilt part of the country. If you are a novice (like me), or experienced, I would not hesitate in recommending a day or two with Stuart.

Many thanks Alastair for your very kind review. Just so you know I think you did really well over the two days especially when day 1 was tough you certainly made up for it on Day 2 with some lovely fish. It was an absolute pleasure, and I am already looking forward to your next visit. Tight lines and be careful .....this fly fishing lark can be seriously addictive. Ha Ha !! best wishes Stuart

Had a half day session, fly fishing on the tees. It was a voucher gift. I made contact with Stuart once the Coronavirus restrictions were lifted. All the equipment was provided, rod, waders, flies and permits and licences too. Stuart knew exactly where to fish and what flies to use. I'd done some fly fishing before and he was brilliant at coaching. He was extremely patient especially when I was heavy handed on the strike. The fish were taking but grayling only. I caught maybe 5 or 6 ranging from a couple of inches to 10 or so, no trout that evening. Stuart was great, he really knew his stuff and great company. I would recommend him to anyone.

Thoroughly enjoyed the time spent fly fishing with Stuart. His expertise and knowledge made me feel comfortable to enable me to enjoy the experience. All equipment was provided and worked well. I even managed to catch plenty of fish on the river Weir (trout and grayling)!

Stuart is a great guy and a brilliant coach. He turned two novices into Pro's in a matter of hours. This was money well spent and we will be going back as soon as possible. Excellent service and a great day.
