I have just completed a course run by Stephen.  It was both enjoyable and informative and I will certainly be coming back - Thanks, Stephen

 When I was accepted into the Appletreewick , Barden and Burnsall a.c , I had spent  years fishing still waters and the river was totally alien to me and I had no idea how to fish rivers . I found that Stephen lived close by to me so we arranged to go to the river , and over the last couple of years has put me right on how to fish the river, which I am now enjoying immensely. Stephen’s knowledge of the Wharfe is exceptional. He knows where the fish lie , the best pools, flies and tactics. I wish to thank Stephen for his help and would recommend anyone to spend a day’s  tuition with him to learn the best of the river Wharfe and I have caught good fish, and had fun in the process. Thank you Stephen for great times on the river. Peter Heliwell.



 Just a few lines ,to say thank you for teaching and guiding me around the river wharfe. I had a marvellous day, far better than I could have imagined. Stephen was great and made my day.

Once again I thank you

Kind regards
