Malcolm Greenhalgh Endorses Steve Rhodes


” I have been lucky, over the last thirty years, to fly-fish for trout and grayling with many other fly-fishers and in a wide variety of rivers across Europe and North America.  I must report that the best five of those fly-fishers includes Steve Rhodes of Go Fly Fishing UK. The other four? Oliver Edwards, the late John Goddard, Chris Hosker and John Roberts.  It is gratifying that four are from the North of England, where the variety of our river trout fishing is far greater than in any other similar sized region of the world.”
