"Marking the line made all the difference to balancing the cast - it made such a difference. Recognition of the need to perfect the technique to enable better casting with the wind rather than continuing to get frustrated against the wind. Very good session. Re-iterating the basics and expanding on existing knowledge has proved very useful. Marker pens are the way forward!"
Gemma Marsden and Andrew Chandler, Northwich

Bob Leckie, Frodsham


"This session provided a good all-round re-introduction to fly fishing by explaining and showing the basics of backing lines and attachment knots, before spending a good hour or so learning the correct method of casting.  This was just enough for me at this stage.  Ian's approach is absolutely perfect."
Michael O'Donnell, Preston
