Bowland Fly Fishing


Peter Scholes

I have been fishing since the age of 10 and started fly fishing 28 years ago learning my craft on the river Garnock in Ayshire Scotland and the lochs of western Scotland before moving on to Stillwaters in the early nineties.

My first venture into competitive fly fishing was in 1992 and as a result I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience and as a result I am now a member of one of the top teams in the UK reaching the international final of the Lexus European championships for the last two years.


Whether you are new to fly fishing or a seasoned angler I am able to offer guidance and advice on the latest techniques/methods on all aspects of river fishing and stillwater fishing for all Trout species and the flies that are most effective to improve your catch rate.

Given my knowledge and experience gained over the past 28 years, I can offer fly fishing instruction to beginners, intermediate and the more experienced angler looking to adopt a more technical approach to their fly fishing or who fancy having a crack at fishing competitively.

Other Information

I am fully CRB/DBS checked, and have full third party liability insurance.
