Les Austin

Les Austin is Church of England minister who fishes and writes for GFF

Les is a Church of England minister who lives in South West England, surrounded by salmon fishing (which he can't afford) and river fishing for small trout, which he attempts to catch with a tiny brook rod.

The Devon coastline also has Sea Bass which provide him with hours of pleasure while his wife, Nan, walks the dog along the beach. When the dog and Les are at home, he clips hair off the dog to tie salt-water shrimp flies...

He is looking forward to teaching his grandchildren to flyfish, and trying to catch mullet on fly.



Dear Les Austin, I ...

Dear Les Austin,
I read about you in the danish magazine Sportsfiskeren, an spend quite a long time to find you in England. As you already know it is free to fish the shores of Denmark and it is, compared to UK or other countries cheep to get a day permit for rivers here.
I`we sure be pleased to help you if you want a danish contact for planning your next trip to Denmark.
I live in the middle of Jutland but like to go to the rivers nearby and the coasts as well.
Through my sixty years of lving I`we been fishing many places in Denmark and Europe and flyfishing and flytying had been quite a passion.
I read UK magazines from time to time. My interest for England come from tracing my relatives in London. (Grandfather).
Look foreward to hear from you.

Sincerely yours,

Martin Seest

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
