Thanks for adding me
« on: January 21, 2019, 10:44:38 AM »
I am an Australian and have been fly fishing for over 45 Years across all continents and within nearly 50 countries. I have guided in Mainland Australia, Tasmanja and England.
I am the 2018 recipient of the Bernard Venerables achievement for a lifetime of trout conservation work presented by the Wild Tout Trust in the UK.
I am a Technical Director for the Italian Casting style developed by Massimo Magliocco. There are very few directors of this style outside of Italy.
I fish all styles with a preference towards European Nymphing although I have written a book on how to fish traditional soft hackles.
Not a competition angler, I do approach all fly fishing outings as though it is a competition, selecting a beat and fishing it for 2-3 hours before moving on. That approach forces me to improve my technique and to be innovative in approach.
Looking forward to participating in discussion.

Welcome to the forum, Philip! I look forward to hearing about your adventures and experiences. I hope that you will enjoy your time spent on the forum!

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Great to see some Aussies here.  Welcome.
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.
