Chairman - Telephone: 01342 832 013

Russell was brought up fishing the rivers and lochs of his native Angus in Scotland, including the pursuit of migrating salmon and sea trout on the River Tay

Following his own migration south in the '70s, he focussed on basketball as his primary sport at a senior level, with only the occasional venture north to fish with his father. So after a 30 year gap, he found his way to TWFFS via its website and suffered the initial culture shock when introduced to the subtleties of boobies, blobs and cormorants

With great support and encouragement from Society members, Russell now ties most of his own flies and enjoys competition fishing on the larger English reservoirs, with significant breaks to seek out wild brownies in Ireland as one of the newer members of the Corrib Expeditionary Force, or occasionally to re-visit the lochs in Scotland he knew in his youth

Micky joined TWFFS in it's inaugural year and has had the honour of being Society Secretary since 2006

He first picked up a fly rod in 1986 and was taught the art of casting on Rusthall Cricket pitch by founder member Andy Sawyer. Catching fish was another matter, so armed with his light weight glass fibre fly rod, a reasonable cast and a Black Chenille he enjoyed a spectacular open day from the bank at Bewl Water - Beginners luck, as it has seemed, but its been tougher ever since. Needless to say and forgive the pun, he was hooked

Peter began fly fishing for trout in the 1960's at a time when the opportunity for excellent trout fishing expanded to many large reservoirs. His fishing has spanned a period of many developments in tackle, techniques, and in the sport itself. He started fishing with split cane rods and the then innovative fly patterns developed by Tom Ivens and has been fortunate to have had the assistance of many talented anglers in developing his skills and interests

Peter strongly believes that the future of the sport depends upon encouraging others and sharing information. His other fishing interests include fishing for wild trout in the West of Ireland and in Shetland and the extensive literature of fly fishing

Mark’s first angling exploits were centred on sea fishing from beach and inshore dinghy. He was first attracted to fly fishing whilst on holiday in Scotland some fifteen years ago. Then after benefitting from tuition at Bewl Water, Mark has enjoyed fly fishing on a variety of large and small waters from boat and bank. He has made steady progress in the club and national competition scene reaching the England National Loch-style final in 2015. As an angler who has enjoyed developing his skills and knowledge, Mark feels the Tunbridge Wells Fly Fishing Society has been important in contributing to his angling progress and wishes to help continue this very positive aspect of Society activities

Graham was a keen coarse fisherman as a boy, but like many before him, his interest turned to other matters during his late teens. His interest in fishing, and particularly fly fishing, was rekindled during a walking holiday in the lake district when an injured knee forced him to look at other activities. A sign offering a day's fly fishing tuition, and the rest, as they say, is history

He enjoys all the challenges and frustrations that battling his wits against a creature with a brain the size of a pea brings, and freely admits to often being on the losing side

Graham participates in the bank and boat and reservoir and small stillwater aspects of our sport, and would dearly like to improve his river fishing skills

Marc took up fly fishing during the summer of 2005 and joined Tunbridge Wells Fly Fishing Society later that year. He enjoys bank and boat fishing, especially the late evening rises

Fly-tying has also become a part of Marc's trout fishing pastime and creating new patterns that catch never fails to get the adrenaline pumping

Trophies and Fund Raising Officer - Telephone: 01892 547 751

Andy first went fishing at the age of 8 off the coast of Cornwall, when his main catches were mackerel and conger eel

Joining TWFFS in 1995 he particularly enjoys Lakedown Trout Fishery, preferring bank to boat fishing

A bespoke traditional upholsterer by trade, Andy does manage to get some work done despite his workshop only being a stone's throw from Bewl Water!

Scott is a plumbing and heating engineer by trade and has been trout fishing for 10 years. He joined Tunbridge Wells Fly Fishing Society in 2000 after meeting Ron Lewis whilst working at Peugeot as a mechanic. He prefers small waters but still enjoys the "Loch Style" boat fishing on the reservoirs

In 2008 Scott began fishing the external competitions, with the society, and had much success finishing 7th out of 54 in the Lexus and 11th out of 106 in the Grand Max
