Guided Fishing

For visiting anglers from overseas or other areas of the country.

All guided days are designed to meet each individual requirements.

For visiting anglers from overseas or other areas of the country I provide a Game Fishing Guide Service which is primarily focused on fishing the rivers of North Wales of which I have an in-depth knowlege . I can save you time and effort by arranging your permit and locating the best fishing at the time. Flowing through some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, our rivers offer some of the best game fishing in the UK. The River Dee is famous for its salmon, sea trout and brown trout and is thought to be the best grayling river in the UK. The River Conwy, famous for its sea trout (sewin) and salmon fishing can also provide excellent sport. In addition, there are many spate rivers which tumble from the mountains and provide some exciting fishing for salmon and sea trout amongst the boulders and deep pot-holes when conditions are right. You may, however, prefer the challenge of fishing for wild brown trout on a small stream.The choice is yours.

The focus of Guided Fishing is on watercraft and catching fish (no guarantee) rather than on fly casting lessons, although you may be shown other casting methods more suitable to fishing running water. River fishing, of course, requires a different range of skills from those used on still waters and if you are unfamiliar with river fishing you will be shown how to 'read' the water on the given day, where fish might be taken and advised on the best method to catch your targeted fish. There may be times when river conditions will be unsuitable for fly fishing and I might suggest other tactics such as spinning or worming and will show you the best techniques which are based on my long experience and knowlege of the water. I can also source your bait for you if required. If you prefer, you can be escorted to one of our big reservoirs, famous for hard-fighting rainbows. Here you can choose to fish from boat or bank and, based on in-depth knowlege, I will show you all the best spots and methods. Alternatively, I can also arrange fishing for you on a Big Trout water where you could catch the fish of your life. Always remember that I want nothing more than for your trip to be a memorable one.
