"The casting lesson on Wed was GREAT . I will be booking on again soon . Many Thanks Chris.
"Having attended informative casting lessons with Willie Banks last Saturday I can thoroughly recommend this tuition to any novice fly fisher like myself or even to more experienced anglers. I left the session a lot more confident than I started and certainly will be back for further lessons in the near future.
