Born in Essex, educated at Ampleforth College, Yorkshire, brought up at Glenforsa, Isle of Mull, went to Rhodesia Cattle Ranching until 1984. Then started the Practical Fly Fishing School in Connemara, Ireland. Later Started Old-Print.com Limited with Brenda as their retirement fund. Now at Glenforsa, Halkirk, Caithness where the wild trout fishing is the best he has had in 70 years of fly fishing.
I found this interesting article in one of old-print’s books from 1897 as you will see the casting method for fly fishing has not changed in one hundred years.
