Outdoor Activities in Ardnamurchan

Angling for Everyone. Suitable ages 8 to 80.

My family have been Mission, Medical Doctors in Africa for more than 3 generations. I have spent most of my life teaching Agriculture there. In these days of starving peoples a very valuable calling. During this time, I have been privileged to have experienced a wide selection of sports fishing.

When I retired I went back to school, to learn how to teach game fishing. Since then I have spent years working on getting down to basics. My objective being to pass onto you skill and knowledge about Angling. To give a comprehensive foundation, upon which you can build a life long hobby and good health.

My fees are based on covering my costs only. I am talking to my accountant about this and will update you.
