Why Us for your Angling Adventure?

31lb 7oz (1)

31lb Pike off Chew caught in 2013.

I am Martyn Cattermole and am a life long angler with over 30 years experience of catching big fish. I am now sharing my experience with others as a professional fishing guide. My aim is to provide a guiding service that enables you to catch the fish of your dreams and learn new skills in the process. I work hard to ensure that a Wye Valley Adventures guided day, which may be in one of my two boats, is a memorable experience resulting in fish that you will never forget !  I specialise in bait fishing for pike and zander and other species such as carp and barbel, although lure and fly fishing is done as well. All guided trips can be designed to meet your precise requirements for pike or zander or other species.

Waters fished include local rivers within an hour or so of Chepstow including the Severn, Warwickshire Avon, Wye, the Bristol Avon and Cardiff Bay. Stillwaters fished include Llandegfedd, Chew and Blagdon trout reservoirs.  We use two boats, one a well equipped GRP 16ft dory moored in Tewkesbury providing access to 30 miles of river, while our smaller boat is a 14ft Polar Kraft that can be trailered to other venues or used on the Gloucester Canal where it is based. For boat fishing we use state of the art Hummingbird Onix 10 SI & 360 sonar equipment.

Whatever it is that you would like to gain from a guided day out with Wye Valley Adventures, then contact me and we can plan a day built around your fishing aspirations. We can provide you with fishing tackle or you can bring your own. All methods can be used including bait, lures or fly fishing depending on the species targeted and the season.

Safety. We supply lifejackets and our boats are all fully licensed and insured. And our staff are DBS (CRB) checked.
