|When I arrived at West House Trout lakes I was taken back by the beautiful setting and I was impressed by the relax yet professional approach to fly fishing. Tom is very a knowledgeable, professional and genuine instructor who really cares about what he does and with his determination I caught my first Rainbow Trout. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day and left feeling confident with the knowledge and skills that I had learnt. Now Iím looking forward to my next day fishing.|

|Tom, the day you gave my nephew Finnegan and myself fishing the Tees at Wycliffe was fantastic. I persisted with the techniques you showed us both on the faster water, got myself a smaller rod and by the end of the week was regularly catching nice Brown Trout on dry fly (so exciting!!!) and Grayling on nymph. Thanks so much - One lesson with you is worth years of trial and error.|
Hope to see you at your lakes sometime.
