We are a team of six (and four dogs), who work for us or for our community interest company, based just outside the Hampshire town of Stockbridge. We all started in a cold Shepard's Hut in 2017 but have grown out of a 14' x 6' box. There is a bit more about us all below with our emails in case you'd like to get in touch.
Gavin Lockhart Mirams
Gavin grew up in Hampshire. He has been fishing for 30 years. He learnt to fish on the Tichborne Brook, and has caught a few big fish, lots of small fish and his fair share of trees.
When Gavin was not fishing he has worked directly for the Prime Minister advising on security, as a sailing instructor on the South Coast, or as a punch-bag for his three sons.
Oscar learnt to fly fish in the Test Valley when he was five years old. In the last 17 years Oscar has fished all over the UK and mainland Europe, specialising in modern nymphing techniques. He represented England in two youth World championships, and three lochstyle internationals. He then spent two years studying sport fishery management at Sparsholt College in Hampshire, where he developed a greater understanding of fish welfare and habitat conservation and restoration.
Since taking a step back from competitive fly fishing Oscar has spent the majority of his time coaching and guiding on the Hampshire Chalkstreams, and freestone rivers of the Yorkshire Dales. In 2016 he co-authored "Nymphing The New Way" with Jonathan White, an award winning book about French Leader fishing techniques.
Georgie (no relation of Tom, unfortunately) runs our corporate events.
We have looked after clients from a range of sectors, from banking to advertising, and Georgie ensures that we exceed our clients' expectations whether they are shooting, stalking or fishing in Hampshire.
Rollo has been a fly fishing guide for years working on the local rivers and lakes around Stockbridge in Hampshire.
He fished and guided in New Zealand, Russia, The Caribbean, Spain and Scotland. But Rollo’s passion is dry fly fishing for trout and he specialises in guiding in Hampshire.
On his days off Rollo works completing river management and conservation work to improve trout habitats, whilst (trying to) keep his Border Terrier in check.
