Paul Slaney, Caerwent, South Wales, UK.
Born in 1963, Ive been flyfishing and tying flies to catch Sea Trout, Trout and Grayling since my early teens.

In this small, over populated, over stocked country its still possible to find fantastic scenery, solitude and the challange of wild fish.

Indeed I count myself as a very lucky bloke as Im able to find all this within a short drive of my home near the Brecon Beacons ( a small national park and range of mountains).

My love of lake fishing developed in the Beacons over the past ten years but the patterns and techniques I use here and other parts of the UK have worked for me in such far flung places as Oregon, Montana,
Slovenia, France, and Holland.

Im allways interested to hear of lake patterns and lake fishing techniques and stories from round the world so please feel free to get in touch...

Hi Paul, Can you let...

Hi Paul, Can you let me know the location of the lake that you had your photos taken fishing the little red devil on one of your sites. This has been debated with my friends on its exact location. I have tried to google it but failed to find it.

Hi Paul, i just read...

Hi Paul, i just read your Andros story, good stuff. I'm on my way there (from Oregon) next week, I have booked a day with Phillip Rolle and am very excited about the bonefishing (my favorite fish on the fly)... Did you happen to see any permit or tarpon on your trip? a grand slam opportunity would be devine. :-)

Paul, Why don't you ...

Paul, Why don't you put a fly construction web page up. However put details of the best lures for different parts of the Uk.

Put it on the web, and allow users to put details of their best lures. In this way a DB of the best types of lures etc can be developed for the Uk. As an advantage you will be able to learn from others.

Paul, I am grasping at straws! I found a fantastic guy who ties superb salmon flys for sale on the web-- somewhere in the UK and have lost and cannot find again.This is how I came across you! Any idea at all who the fellow is ? noel j ross @, {dublin ireland} sorry for the bother!!!!!

Hi Paul Please could...

Hi Paul Please could you tell me the location of that lake that your friend Martin had his Photograph taken on one of your web sites.This has been debated with my friends on the exact location of this lake in the Beacons.

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.
