Fishing Tips

Stay in touch with my blog and I will share loads of Fishing Tips to help you catch more fish and enjoy your time on the bank. I use a mixture of video demonstrations and written descriptions to help you get the most out of your time when you go fishing. I’ve always found my clients learn the best when they can practice things for themselves. In between lessons why not check out a few videos and see if your catches improve. If there is a particular question you would like me to answer then drop me a line on the contact page.

Most of the fishing tips are focussed on coarse fishing in cornwall which will include carp fishing and pike fishing in cornwall.  I also have a small boat so from time to time when I can get out to sea I’ll share those adventures as well.  There’s nothing I like more than catching blue sharks in Cornwall and from a boat that’s not much bigger than the fish it can get very exciting!

Testimonials

The morning was a perfect balance of instruction and personal involvement

I attended the School of Fish course entitled “Get back into angling – predator fishing” last Saturday morning at Porth reservoir.

I have to say that rarely has three hours passed so quickly and it is not often that I have found an instructor, in any field, so competent, succinct and amusing as Alex.

The morning was a perfect balance of instruction and personal involvement and I am already arranging to attend further courses with my son in law, who was so enthused by my description on the mornings proceedings that he wishes to become involved.

Many thanks Alex

Could not recommend his lessons more highly

Having recently been disabled not only has my mobility suffered greatly but my confidence had taken a huge knock also. My hobby of sea fishing had to end and I hoped to find a way to return to freshwater fishing. I found by chance the pike fishing lesson with Alex and signed up hoping for a little guidance. Never mind ‘guidance’, Alex thoroughly covered all aspects each of the fishing methods with his knowledge,considerate attitude to both venue and fish handling. Alex took extra care and put forward options for me to help overcome any difficulties posed my health and I am now ready to take up fishing once again thanks to Alex. Could not recommend his lessons more highly. Martin

They had a fantastic day on the lake with Alex!

I booked a carp fishing lesson for my partner and brother in laws, who all tell me they had a fantastic day on the lake with Alex! They went over to Newquay on Sunday and along with picking up new skills throughout the day, they had multiple catches between them. Alex is not only knowledgeable and passionate about what he does, but a super nice guy as well – we’ll be highly recommending to anyone looking to improve skills or take up fishing as a hobby! Thanks again!
