Matthew HoldenMatthew Holden

To say that Matt is enthusiastic about angling would be an understatement !

He lives and breathes fly fishing and his passion for it began at an early age after being introduced to it by his dad back home in South Africa on the waters of the Western Cape. He was chairman of his school piscatorial society and first worked in a fly shop at the age of 16. He was a hatchery foreman on a trout farm breeding rainbow trout and developed an excellent all round knowledge of aquaculture, ichthyology, zoology and entomology. He's a keen flytyer and has fished for various different fresh and saltwater species in South Africa, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Italy and Spain.
