About Me.........

Bank Tackle

My name is Steve Ward I have fished for more than 55 years on rivers, lakes and sea, I am a L1ACAQ qualifed angling coach.

The last 30 years mainly fishing for Barbel and Chub on the Kennet, Hampshire Avon,Dorset Stour, River Thames and Middle Severn.


Also the River Thame(Oxon) mainly for Chub and Perch.


I have enjoyed my fishing over these years and felt that it was only right to

share  some of my angling and river craft  with others, having already done

with my son Ryan and his son Toby.

The rivers are always changing so you have to keep an open mind how and where

to fish at all times, this is what keeps me going.....................


With double figure Barbel on many different rivers, with a personal best fish of 16lb 1oz from River Thames, likewise many Chub over the 6lb mark.

Plus all round fishing with Pike to 20lb ,Common & Mirror carp over 20lb, plus large Perch,

Tench and Bream.


Fly Fishing has been a passion for the last 25 years.

Involving many days tution,teaching a very hands on style of fishing.

Seeing and trying to catch Brown and Rainbow Trout in clear water is a great challenge!!!


Salt water Fly Fishing our latest offer!! Sail Fish in the Indian Ocean,Amazing!!!
