Meet our Guides
I have lived on the Central Tablelands all my life. My passion for fly fishing began in my mid-teens, and 20 years on, that passion is stronger than ever. I’ve spent extensive time fly fishing my local waterways, dams and lakes, and this has given me a great understanding of the area's ecology and seasonal characteristics.
Only a short trip west of Sydney, the Central Tablelands has an amazing variety of water. Everything from small stream hard running wild rainbows to still water golden browns through to big brawling lake trout. The area really has it all. I believe our trout waters may be equal to any trophy water in the world.
The beautiful scenery, wildlife, serenity of ambient sounds, the running water, and did I mention the fishing? It never gets old; every day out holds something new!
Let me introduce you to fly fishing on the Central Tablelands where you can make use of my decades of experience on both private and public waters. I accommodate all levels of fitness and experience and offer full or part day tours. In that time you can stalk wild brown and rainbow trout while improving your streamcraft, fly selection and presentation skills. I was honoured when John Marshall from Sydney Fly Outfitters approached me to guide for him, and I would be delighted to take you fishing!
Jacob is our newest guide. He grew up fishing and hunting in Victoria and doing all things outdoors. After his time in the Australian Army where he proudly served our country overseas, he settled in Sydney with his family, joining the Ambulance Service as a Paramedic. Passionate about fly fishing and all things that go with it, Jacob's great love is "introducing local people to their own water, fly fishing for anything that swims". When he's not guiding or working in the shop, his favourite pastime is targeting carp in the Sydney basin on fly patterns which he has developed himself. He has been honing his guiding skiils over the past couple of seasons and is proving to be very popular with our regular clients. You can meet Jake at Bar Flies and watch his fly tying talents first hand. I know that a day fishing with Jake will be a great day fishing.
