I have been fortunate enough to salt water fish all around the world. Florida, Mexico, Dubai, Kenya, Thailand, Spain and Turkey to mention a few for a wide variety of fish from GT, Sail Fish, Bone Fish, Tarpon, Queen Fish, King Fish, Snook, Barracuda, Shark the list goes on and on. But probably the hardest fighting fish I have ever caught is the Yellowfin Tuna. I can only describe catching one like the equivalent of standing on a motorway bridge and casting your fly onto a passing HGV and hanging on for dear life. They really are something else.
I love fishing for Salmon and Trout. The Tweed is my favourite Salmon river in the UK. I can’t make my mind up which is my favourite beat though? The Derwent at Chatsworth house is probably my favourite trout beat, it’s not just the fishing at Chatsworth it’s the magnificent views that are stunning with Chatsworth house being the main focal point. When I’m fishing I get a real buzz when you feel that pull on your line.
