Fly Casting Tuition

If looking for professional Fly Casting lessons then at the very least your instructor needs to be fully qualified and hold the Scottish Game Angling Instructor Certificate. You can find an instructor in your area at the SGAIC Website

I can personally recommend John Milne at Fly Casting Scotland

Buying Flies Online

Not all flies that you see online are equal when it comes to quality. I’ve bought numerous flies before I started to tie my own and the hooks used are one of the most important things to consider when buying flies.  There’s no point in hooking the fish of a lifetime only to lose it to a straight hook. Trust me, I have been there before and it isn’t a pleasant experience.
