About Mark Tickner

I've been passionate about fishing for most of my life and for many years I was a keen coarse fisherman but a few years ago I decided to try fly fishing and I have never looked back.

Having worked as an engineer in Formula 1 for thirty years, fishing was always a way for me to relax and unwind. I then decided that I needed to plan for my retirement, so embarked on qualifying as a fly fishing coach so that I could help and encourage others to enjoy the sport.

I'm based within the Cotswolds in West Oxfordshire which is a great location for fly fishing. There are several places that I have access to where I can coach and guide on both lakes and rivers including the wonderful Lockinge Fishery which I also manage with my wife Paula.

I'm a Level 2 Game Angling Coach and an Associate Member of GAIA, the Game Angling Instructors' Association. I’m also fully qualified to coach children.

All of the coaches that I work with are fully qualified game fishing instructors, with DBS clearance and hold qualifications for Safeguarding Children as well as First Aid.

We are fanatical fly fisherman with experience of fishing both in the UK, Europe and South America and are passionate about helping anglers of all abilities share our love of fly fishing.

If you would like to get in touch to find out more about what we do, or make a booking, I look forward to hearing from you.
