Craig is very patient and informative a great first lesson, will be back.
Great session excellent tutor with lots of patience and easy to follow, would recommend to anyone, thanks.
Craig guided me on the River Dee on my first time with a fly rod, very informative, learned a lot and was a nice guy on top. Great day! Even caught a few fish.
Just a quick note to thank you for all your advice on my adventure in to the dark side of sea trout fishing, it was a great pleasure to meet you and the friendly, but also very professional way you instructed me. Your obvious intermate knowledge of the art of, what to look for, and the different tactics for various river conditions. Look forward to fishing with you again, good luck and tight lines.
Regards Mike Carpino
Having fly fished previously, some might think (as I did) that I had a head start in my lesson; however, I quickly discovered that I had been practising all the wrong techniques, which had consequently ingrained some rather bad habits. The value of learning to cast from an untainted canvas was instantly apparent, as I realised how difficult it would be to correct such deeply entrenched behaviours.
Incredibly, within just 2 hours Craig had managed to iron out my poor technique and instil good practice. Crag’s warm, friendly and non-judgemental approach, coupled with his genuine desire to help, created an extremely comfortable and fertile learning environment.
Craig’s natural manner is to provide as much information as possible; however, he had an innate ability to impart just the right amount, at exactly the right moment, without overloading or confusing me. I have immediately noticed a substantial improvement in my casting and fly presentation.
I thoroughly enjoyed Craig’s tutorial, it offered great value for money and was extremely effective in a very short space of time. I will certainly use his services again and regardless of ability or experience, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.”
