I'm John Walker, a qualified fly fishing instructor (I hold an AAPGAI Advanced certificate) and Level 3 sports coach tutor and assessor. I formed Snowdonia Fly Fishing Guides in 2010 to help fellow game anglers who want a guide or fly fishing or casting lessons in North Wales.
Other activities include working as an Area Secretary for the Grayling Society, and with Angling Wales as a coach tutor and assessor.
I take the welfare and satisfaction of clients very seriously and will always give them my personal attention. I have public liability insurance, hold current certificates in emergency first aid and child protection and have a clean DBS record.
I'm often asked by clients what tackle they should buy. Any advice or recommendations I give on equipment or clothing will be unbiased and not given as the result of sponsorship or affiliations.
I've been a keen angler and nature and environmental conservationist from a very young age and my passion and ethos has grown with me. I have a catch and release policy using barbless hooks for all wild fish to set an example of best practice, sustainable fishing and assist the future viability of healthy stock in our rivers, lakes and seas.
