The experiences of a ‘silver haired’
Fly Fisherman

Welcome to the Silver Fly Fisherman Blog!  I do not consider myself an expert Fly Fisherman.  But I have enthusiastically carried out the sport for more than forty five years.  Therefore, I can claim to have a certain amount of experience.  I have probably made every mistake possible in fly fishing, and learnt from them.  I had to find the correct way from books and by asking friends.  These days, it is much easier, everything is available on the Internet!  Fly fishing is not just about learning to cast a fly, it is a science where you never stop learning.  That is what makes Fly Fishing so intriguing.  There are just so many aspects to the sport.  Once you have learnt the basics and start catching fish, take up fly tying.  Nothing is quite like catching a fish on a fly that you have tied yourself.  

Silver Fly Fisherman’s Guide to Salmon, Trout & Sea Trout Fishing in Asturias!  I have just published my guide to fly fishing on the River Sella, Asturias, in northern Spain!  You you can fish for Salmon and Trout for just €17 a year, if you follow the information in the guide, which has ninety-five illustrations, photographs and satellite images with GPS coordinates of the forty one fishing beats.  It is available from Amazon, just follow the Link and don’t forget to review it:

I will be writing regular Blogs about my experiences fishing the crystal clear waters of the River Sella, whilst at Tempranas Mill, right on the banks of the river.  I now need to tie a few more flies!
