Birds of a Feather - Canon PhotoPlus apprentice shoot

Paul Sharman, Peter Travers and Ben Hall.

Earlier this year I spent a glorious day down near the Welsh border at the International Centre for Birds of Prey in Newent, Gloucestershire with the editor of PhotoPlus - The Canon Magazine, Peter Travers, and their technique editor, James Artaius. They had invited me down to be their 'apprentice' for the day, a regular feature in the magazine, and had lined up professional wildlife photographer Ben Hall to be my tutor for the day. It was a fantastic opportunity and Ben was a great teacher, fine tuning my settings and technique to make the most of the day's subjects.

In the Far North Magazine by Inari-Saariselka Tourism

I was delighted that the Inari-Saariselka Tourism office in Finnish Lapland wanted to use my local salmon fishing story in their official tourism magazine. It starts on page 24 (Salmon Fishing By The Light of the Midnight Sun) but it is worth flicking through all the magazine to see what a visit to Finnish Lapland might have in store for you! I can highly recommend it and I will be going back as soon as I can for more fishing and wilderness adventures.

Trout & Salmon Magazine photo debut

When I hatched a plan with Paul Procter last year to visit his main stomping grounds in the Cumbrian region of England, little did we both know what was to follow. Brown trout in the local rivers were the target but we could have never dreamed how the day would turn out, ending in his largest UK river trout ever. Paul wrote about the day's fishing in an exclusive story for Trout & Salmon Magazine's March 2018 issue and I supplied the photographs.

Fly Fishing for Cumbrian Gold - FishandFly.com

 The superbly marked cheek of a large Cumbrian brown trout.

The superbly marked cheek of a large Cumbrian brown trout.

In a county better known for the copper mining history of the Lake District, it was in fact the stunning golden-bellied brown trout of the wild Cumbrian rivers that had drawn me north from my home in Sussex in early May. I stayed at the wonderful Hole House Cottage courtesy of The Coppermines & Lakes Cottages and spent 2 days on the rivers with Paul Procter, fly fishing for large and superbly marked brown trout...

2016 Azores Big Game Fishing - Saltwater Boat Angling Magazine

The 2016 Azores Airlines Big Game Fishing Tournament drew in teams from both sides of the Atlantic to these idyllic islands and the weather was much better than my last visit 2 years ago. Being on the winning boat meant I got to see and photograph the winning blue marlin for my article published in Saltwater Boat Angling magazine.

It was a nice surprise to see my photograph of a pike being held low in the water prior to be being released named as Fly Dreamers photo of the week earlier in the month.

 The eyes of the water wolf!

Leaping Sea Trout Becomes Cover Star

Sea trout like their cousins the salmon make their way upstream to spawn.

I was very pleased to be able to help out the Institute of Fisheries Management with their need for a sea trout image to grace the Spring 2016 cover of FISH, their very interesting members magazine. 

Visiting likely locations to view and photograph leaping sea trout the last 3 years takes a lot of time and patience and there are plenty more occasions where nothing is seen than the few where I timed it just right. Still, having the chance to witness such a spectacular sight local to me in Sussex even just once a season makes all the cold muddy hikes across the countryside in the dead of winter worth it.

Come Rain or Shine - Zambuni PR Blog

Zambuni PR organised a recent press day on the Orvis beat of the famous River Test in Hampshire. A collection of my fellow journalists and anglers braved the extreme conditions early on and were rewarded with some healthy brown and rainbow trout which were all returned. We also got to try out some of the latest Orvis fly rods and reels.
