PRESENTATION: Success in low and clear rivers

Posted by Stuart Wardle on Sunday, May 24, 2015, In : Guiding 

This is a story about a real guiding day with a regular client Kelvin.
He had been out with me a good few times and I have to say his fly fishing has improved so much in a year that he is now a very decent fly fisher and able to catch a good few trout & grayling on the rivers. With the river levels being so low and clear and very little hatching during the day I suggested he may wish to re-arrange however all credit to him, he wanted to use this as an opportunity to really develop his skills ...

Weather meets British Columbia !!

Posted by Stuart Wardle on Wednesday, February 27, 2013, In : Guiding 

Last Saturday I was guiding Calvin on the Swale and to say it was a bit cold was an understatement.
Calvin was over from British Columbia visiting family in the area and got in touch at short notice as he fancied a few hours on a Northern spate river chasing grayling. Job sorted....wished I could have sorted the weather though !!....well I guess it was almost home from home!!! and even a nice big smile too.

Nice one John...on a tough day too

Posted by Stuart Wardle on Friday, July 6, 2012, In : Guiding 

A beauty wild brown trout just over the pound caught by John on the dries on what was a tough day this week. 
15 minutes after this picture was taken the water came up brown and muddy...and we definitely weren't on the Mississippi !!
Hopefully this rain will ease soon and we can get back on the rivers.
In the meantime, fly & tackle orders and ventures to lakes and stillwaters are keeping us busy.

Nice one Alex

Posted by Stuart Wardle on Thursday, June 14, 2012, In : Guiding 
On Tuesday, Alex & David came to the Durham Fly Fishing Company to learn how to cast and try fly fishing for the first time.
 Well it didn't take long before she was casting a decent line roll casting like an expert and then presenting a dry fly on the edge of the ripple.
Well 3 fish on and two landed ......pretty good for a first time with a fly rod.

That smile says it all....


Nice one David...its in the net....                                        



Whoo Hoo......
