2024 DATES
  • The best time to contact me to make a booking is January/February. By this time I should have a clearer picture of all my other dates and commitments.
  • From April to August I prefer to coach on commercial fisheries and stillwaters.
  • River and canal sessions are best booked from September to November.
  • I can run winter sessions at short notice if conditions are good. I won’t charge a cancellation fee during this time as the weather can be unpredictable.


Due to demand I have streamlined my list of preferred venues. During peak times (March to October) I am only offering coaching sessions on commercial fisheries and venues within an hour or 60 miles from where I live. Other venues can still be agreed if you contact me for a chat.
