David Johnson is a professional fly fishing coach based in the Derbyshire Peak District. After many years coaching fly fishing, David decided to write a beginner’s guide for those taking up this fascinating branch of the sport.

This guide covers the areas that other beginner’s guides often miss out, such as etiquette, fishing costs, licences and permissions, flies and guidance on taking fish for the table. More straightforward information on tackle and watercraft as well as fly fishing techniques are also included. Written for the complete beginner in a simple and easy to understand style, this guide concentrates on fly fishing for trout in the UK and should equip the reader with the knowledge to get started on their fly fishing journey.
