As a company, we are well established and proven to provide the highest quality fly fishing tuition for everybody, whether it is your first time or you are an experienced angler we offer a truly bespoke service at all times and we also provide lessons for trout fishing and salmon fishing, fly fishing experiences and corporate fly fishing days. We are also fortunate to personally have small rivers offered out as fly fishing syndicates, and our own 5 acre trout lake.

As of 2020 Fly Fishing Yorkshire has taken the decision to become a "Catch and Release" company only. We stand proud to promote conservation and protect our wild fish stocks, and we pride ourselves on being the first company to do so.

We also offer Fly Fishing Vouchers, they are the ideal way to give that perfect gift for Christmas or to celebrate important occasions. 

We also consider the privacy and confidentiality of our clients to be a priority, which is why we have a minimal presence on social media.  


Olly Shepherd

Fly fishing has always been my passion. From the first time I held a fly rod I was hooked! I have now been in the industry 12 years, and become one of the leading fly fishing businesses in Yorkshire. 

I spent many years working towards becoming a inspiring instructor and also trying to modernise fly fishing, by having a different approach to traditional casting techniques, water craft, entomology and to fly tying. I am qualified as a Professional Game Angling Instructor (GAIA) also an accredited Level 2 Sport England Coach and a Riverfly Partnership Monitor, this makes it possible for me to pass on my knowledge and true enthusiasm for the sport. But I believe the most important qualification of all, is being able to make our time together great fun! 2020 brought one of my proudest moments where I was asked to become one of a very selected group of people and made a Trustee of the Tees Rivers Trust.

With my qualifications comes all the necessary coverage to teach everyone. I possess first aid training, I am DBS checked and I hold a certificate in child protection. Clients of all ages can rest assured they are in a safe and secure environment when taking part in fly fishing lessons.
