Alex was raised on a diet of fly fishing and I am pretty sure that Charles Jardine only gave him fly reels to play with instead of toys! Alex has fished for the England Youth Team, representing them at World Championship level over a 4 year period winning a team Bronze and a highest individual finish of 7th in the world.
He has travelled extensively, looking after groups of people and guiding them as well as giving numerous casting demonstrations alongside his father. Alex ties flies for the Partridge & Semperfli pro teams, assists product development with Guideline and is an Ambassador to the Angling Trust.
From travelling around New Zealand with a couple of friends, a backpack, a gas stove and a fishing rod in 2008, Alex continues to travel in search of new adventures both at home and abroad. These adventures have seen him encounter fish both in freshwater and saltwater on six of the World’s seven continents. Alex utilises the knowledge that he has gained to teach others to fish at home and also leads hosted trips to foreign destinations.
Alex is often found working on new fly patterns for his next adventure, whether that be on his local rivers and streams or chasing some mythical fish in some unpronounceable location.
He has extensive knowledge of fishing in the American West, East Coast USA, Canada, mainland Europe, Iceland, Norway, Mexico, Venezuela, South Africa, Mongolia, Australia and New Zealand.
