We’re proud to have assembled a great team to plan your fishing holidays here at Aardvark McLeod. Most of us are anglers ourselves and you can be sure that no stone is unturned in setting you up to have a wonderful time. Here’s a quick look at who’s who:

Peter McLeod – Founder, fishing fanatic and teller of stories. If there’s fly fishing to be had, then Peter’s probably been there. As brilliant behind a camera as he is behind a fly, he’s our video mogul as well as our saltwater supremo.

Charlotte Chilcott – Safari planner turned fishing ace without whom Aardvark McLeod would disintegrate into chaos. A true adventure lover with a head for the operational side of things, she’s a steady hand on the tiller with a big following of happy clients.

Alex Jardine – Fishing almost before he could stand Alex is a walking encyclopaedia on all things angling.  Wonderful guide, teacher and host, his quarry doesn’t stand a chance when he’s on form – which is pretty much every cast.

Olly Thompson – Our globetrotting guide turned salesman. There aren’t many parts of the world Olly hasn’t wielded a fishing rod and his guiding experience gives him a useful inside line to planning fly fishing holidays.

Justin Hancock – Smooth talking Aussie who’s taken on the chalkstream and UK side of fishing here. You’re guaranteed a good lunch and an entertaining day out in his company.

Charlotte Opperman – Another import from the safari industry, this Charlotte heads up marketing. Having endured way too many fishing holidays, her main quest, alongside promoting Aardvark McLeod, is to find that elusive perfect fishing/non-fishing holiday combo.

Abby McTighe – With a firm eye on all things financial, Abby is instrumental in keeping the show on the road.  A killer cake maker and buyer of biscuits, teatime is always good when she’s in the office.
