Go Fly Fishing UK was formed in June 2002 by current joint proprietors Dave Martin and Steve Rhodes (fishing friends for over 30 years). Both are passionate Trout and Grayling fly fishers and both had long successful business careers before deciding in 2002 to become full time professional fly fishing guides and qualified fly fishing instructors and to run Go Fly Fishing UK.
Dave runs the business in the south of England and has himself guided over 900 client days on the chalkstream rivers, including well over 400 days on the River Test. Steve has always lived in Yorkshire and is based in a Yorkshire Dales fly fishers paradise. Until his retirement he ran the Go Fly Fishing UK business in the north of England, Wales and Scotland.
Dave and Steve are both Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guides as are some of our other excellent fly fishing guides. As well as Dave and Steve Go Fly Fishing UK has over twenty other excellent fly fishing guides based around the UK. All, as well as being highly experienced fly fishers, are also trained and qualified fly fishing instructors.
The two main services offerings of Go Fly Fishing UK are fly fishing lessons and guided fly fishing days.
Since its formation in 2002 Go Fly Fishing UK has become very successful and highly regarded within the UK fly fishing scene. As at spring 2017 we have now taken approaching 7000 bookings and over 10000 people have fished with us. We have achieved almost 100% customer satisfaction and it is very rare for our clients to have fishless days with us. In its May 2011 edition 'The Field' magazine listed Go Fly Fishing UK as one of the Top 10 fly fishing schools in the UK.
