December 2012

Published on December 6th, 2012 by

I am in now sorting out the calendar for next year’s courses and hosted trips.  I will put these up on the web site shortly. The autumn fishing on the San was magnificent, particularly for trout, in numbers; so prolific, in fact, that we had to fish through these before being able to access the

Autumn 2012

Published on September 10th, 2012 by

I have just returned from the magnificent San in SE Poland and have that re-affirmation that this river is Europe’s premier trout and grayling river, at least on such a large scale.
