Fly fishing at its best is an artform, there are millions of fly fishers around the world who cast a line with various degrees of success and finesse. Every novice angler has to start by learning how to cast a line and every single fly angler should learn how to do it correctly! That's where instructors like John Milne come into play. Guidance and instruction makes learning how to cast a fly line a lot easier and the tips & tricks that come from instructors like John, stay with us for a very long time.
If you've ever considered trying fly fishing, then John will be here during our Open Weekend to provide you with some casting lessons! As mentioned before John is an instructor, but he is one of the few instructors that holds the prestigious Scottish Game Angling Instructors Certificate (SGAIC). He is also accredited through the Scottish Anglers National Association (SANA).
A little more about John; He was introduced to fishing at the age of 7 by his Uncle and has been teaching and guiding since 1999. His achievements include being a successful competition angler, winning some fifty events. He has written thousands of articles which have been published across Newspapers and Magazines. He featured on the popular BBC, Fred MacAuley show in 2009, talking about the art of fly casting.
