Client comments and testimonials

"We had a great day fishing in the Lake District with Geoff!  He was a patient and helpful instructor for Nancy, who had not fly fished before, helping her catch four beautiful brown trout her first time out.  I was hoping to catch my first European grayling and Geoff helped me do that, putting me on water where there were grayling and brown trout and showing me the best techniques for catching them.  Geoff's own love of fishing and the River Eden made the day truly special for Nancy and me." Bob and Nancy Irvin, Olney, Maryland, USA

"Many thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable day's fly fishing on the River Eden.  It was great to be learning new techniques and tips, as well as ironing out the flaws in my casting.  Catching a few fish was almost a surprise given the very bright conditions!  I think wild brown trout are beautiful but catching my first graying on the fly was special. I hope to fish with you again in the future."  Martin - Cheshire, UK

"Just writing to say thank you for taking me out on the river, I enjoyed the session enormously and can wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone who wants to either get started in river fishing for trout, learn more about how to be an effective river fisher or learn the finer points of upstream nymphing / dry fly fishing / rivercraft. I really appreciated the time you took with me at the start of the session to answer my questions and your kindness and patience throughout." Ian – Scotland, UK

"As I hope you could tell, I found yesterday one of the most enjoyable and fascinating days ever! 

You are such an excellent teacher, and explain things in so clear and helpful a way. I think that whilst there will be plenty that I shall forget rather quickly, you have ensured that many of the instructions are firmly fixed in my mind and I can’t wait to get out there again to practice." Jane - Scotland, UK

"Just a couple of lines to thank you for a great day out on the water yesterday, I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoyed everything the "crack was good and the tuition spot on.

It is only when you get home and sit down with a G&T and reflect on things just how many useful bits of info, tips and techniques etc. that you so kindly passed on." Doug - Lancs, UK

Thank you for our day of instruction with you on the River Eden. We both got a lot out of your advice and thoroughly enjoyed your company. You have certainly initiated a wonderful and much needed way of escaping, relaxing and enjoying a new found interest for me. Ruth - London, UK
