James Green

Orvis Fly Reel Review

James Green began fishing at the tender age of two. Born into a family of keen fishers, including mother, father, brother and later stepfather, it was somewhat inevitable he would take up the sport.
 
Although James enjoys coarse, sea and game fishing, his passion lies with fly fishing. There's nothing he loves more than practising his casting in northern England and Scotland, especially when there's a chance of an occasional salmon or seatrout. And if the opportunity arises, he can sometimes be found in warmer climes, pursuing tailing bonefish, tarpon or permit.
 
James' claim to fame was being voted overall 'Master Angler of the Year' at the age of twelve - an award he received from Shakespeare tackle for bagging two big (at the time) common carp, in successive casts, on floating crust: 25lbs and 23.5lbs.

16lb Atlantic salmon from the Tyne

Fishing Bait

After a very hard week fishing together for salmon on the River Lyon in Perthshire, my pal Andy Blyth and I decided to have a few casts on a stretch of the River Tyne on our way back south. It was great to see a few fish running in a river that was once so polluted, and even better to catch a lovely one like this!

Definitely better in full-screen mode. I know it’s 7 minutes long, but I hope you make it through to the end!! All the best, Jim
