About Us

At Fly Fisheries UK, we live and breathe fly fishing. Our passion is helping anglers of all levels explore the vast fly fishing opportunities across the UK’s rivers, lakes, and streams.

I’m Simon, a dedicated fly fisher for over 25 years and founder of Fly Fisheries UK. After honing my casting skills on the trout streams of Scotland, I became hooked on the art of fly fishing. Since then, I’ve travelled the length and breadth of the UK in search of new waters and bigger fish. Some of my most memorable days have been spent knee-deep in a chalkstream stalking wary brown trout, battling salmon on the Tummel, and even hooking into monster pike on the Fenland drains.

Sharing insider knowledge and first-hand experience is what Fly Fisheries UK is all about. Our team travels to fisheries across the country to bring you in-depth guides covering everything from access and facilities to likely catches and top fly patterns. We also provide advice and tips for all aspects of the sport – from a beginner’s guide to fly casting right up to mastering complex sinking line techniques.

Alongside our fishery guides, you’ll find my regular blog posts documenting recent trips, gear reviews, and everything else fly fishing. Our video library also covers essential techniques like fly tying with step-by-step tutorials even for total beginners.

Whether you’re just getting started or looking for new fly fishing adventures, our mission at Fly Fisheries UK is to inspire anglers to get out on the water. Contact us today to learn more about exploring the UK’s world-class fly fishing destinations. Tight lines!
