What my clients say…

Thanks so much for the photos. Paddy had such a great day with you. Thanks so much again Holly

Holly, London

Had a great day with Chris was able to defy tradition by managing to teach this old dog – who has been fly fishing for over 60 years – new tricks. No mean feat and done with great tact!

Doug, Spain

Many thanks for your help today. I have lots of work to do on my technique, but feel I have made significant progress after today. More practice needed!


Just to say thank you again for your time and patience yesterday. I found the casting great fun and cannot wait to get back on the Wye.

George, Gloucester

Whether you want to improve your casting skills, deepen your watercraft knowledge or just enjoy a days angling in great company, look no further than Casting with Style.  Chris is one of the best!

Paul, Manchester

Just a quick not to thank you once again for a great day. Myself and my 2 friends thoroughly enjoyed your company and your teaching style, i.e. not too intrusive but there whenever required,. It is obvious you know the river very well and your enthusiasm is plain to see. We hope to come back again to the Wye and catch up with you another time.


Just wanted to say thanks for the day on Friday. Was great to freshen up on the casting and certainly have plenty to now work on.

Mr Purtell, London

Just a quick line to thank you again for the fly fishing lesson last weekend – I thoroughly enjoyed it and catching 4 fish was an unexpected bonus – as you’d expect, the entire family had trout for tea that evening.  It was also very kind of you to catch a further 5 fish on your casts, and allow Rob to reel them in – I think we claimed it a Rob victory on the day, but we all know what really happened!!  Many thanks, and as we mentioned we’ll book another day with you in the New Year

John, South Wales

Thank You for today. Your help is much appreciated, especially your critique of my efforts. I found them helpful, detailed and to the point!

Neil, London

Thanks for an excellent two days guiding last week. I subsequently had a great last session on the Ithon below the cottage in the deeper water. This yielded two cracking Grayling over 15″ long along with another grayling, trout and a number of salmon parr. I now have sufficient confidence to tackle the river beats associated with the Albury Waters where I normally fish. The tying tips were also most helpful especially the hand whip finish which has previously eluded me.

Roger, Surrey

Many thanks for all your help and patience with my brother, our kids and myself. We all enjoyed your expertise and humour. We will recommend you to anyone interested. Thanks also for saving or starting my fishing career.


I would like to thank you for such an enjoyable two days. I`m well and  truly hooked. Hope to come to Wales again next year

Pete, Exeter

Cheers for a fab day. Learnt loads and had a great day on the river I wondered if you would mind sending me a couple of your shuttlecock patterns to guide my efforts in tying up some of my own

Guy, York

Many thanks for a landmark session on the Usk. Probably the best day fishing we’ve had yet. Fantastic fun and much learning. Much appreciated

Simon, London

Just a short note to say thanks again for some really useful instruction yesterday.  Both myself and Paddy really enjoyed it and feel we benefited from our time with you

Martin, Ireland

Just a short note to say thanks for the lesson yesterday, I feel a lot more confident with my casting, also knowing what I’m doing wrong. Will contact you later on in the year for the half day course

Leon, Wales

Thanks so much for your tuition and guidance on Monday. I really enjoyed it and learnt so much. Thanks also for finding my hat the next day!

Matt, Winchester

Just to thank you again for yesterday.  You clearly know your subject and the beat, and have undoubtedly helped a course fisherman in the first steps of the art of fly fishing


Thank you Chris. We enjoyed the day very much

Kevin, Canada
