My name is Jonathan Morris – welcome to my website.
I started fishing at a young age in the River Wye and other streams around Builth Wells where I was born and still live.
Initially it was worm fishing for trout and I was very excited when my mother bought me a fly fishing kit on my 8th birthday. This was when I decided that I was going to be a fly fisherman.
My passion for fishing has led me to my present position as river keeper on the Wye where I can guide and teach anglers of all abilities to improve their skills. Depending on the need of the client I can tailor lessons to be hourly, half daily or full days. I can also do taster days, corporate days and group tuition when required.
I am an Association of Advanced Professional Game Angling Instructor (AAPGAI) . This is the premier qualification in the UK and demands high standards of both casting and teaching to achieve. I hold an advanced level in Double Hand, Single Hand and Fly Dressing. I am in possession of a first aid certificate and I am DBS (formally CRB) checked.
I have been fortunate to enjoy fishing in Russia and Norway for salmon, Argentina for sea trout and New Zealand for brown and rainbow trout. I regularly fish the Ness, the Spey and the Tay in Scotland and also act as one of the team of instuctors running courses on the Tay.
I run Single and Double Hand courses with my good friends Illtyd Griffiths and Craig Evans on the River Wye. These will be posted on the website so keep a look out for them!
I look forward to introducing you to or helping you to enjoy this wonderful pastime.
