About Me


My name is Alan Maughan, I am an experienced salmon fisherman, guide and A.A.P.G.A.I. qualified fly casting and game angling instructor. I live and teach on the banks of the River Tyne at Wylam, 13 miles West of Newcastle.

I am passionate about helping others to improve their casting and fishing techniques. I have a very broad and extensive knowledge and understanding of modern fly-casting and salmon fishing with regard to both the modern day tackle and fishing techniques. I have in the past worked within the tackle industry as a product design consultant so have a lot of experience as to which types of tackle work best with different casters and fishing scenarios. I have designed both rods and lines for tackle manufacturers so have a proven in depth understanding of how things work, this knowledge I am happy to pass on to my clients.

Things move on in life at a rapid pace and that too can be said for salmon fishing and in particular Spey casting. Through this website and my personal tuition I hope to be able to bring clients up to speed with what is happening today in the world of "Modern Spey Casting".

I pride myself in offering clients of all abilities and age groups an interesting and informative experience with first class tuition set in beautiful surroundings. I run residential spey casting and salmon fishing courses on various rivers around the UK and I also host trips to various prime locations both at home and abroad.

Please drop me an email or give me a call if you would like to know more about the services and salmon fishing opportunities I can offer.
