ABOUT MARTIN PENTON

 

I am based in Tunbridge Wells and have been fishing since I was 11 years old.  Course and sea fishing originally, however in recent years I have almost exclusively fly fished for trout on the still waters of the South East.  Along the way I have become a fully licensed Level 2 game fishing coach with the Angling Trust. The qualification includes full insurance to coach, an Enhanced DBS check for working with under 18s and includes First Aid training.  As with all Angling Trust licensed coaches the priority during lessons is your safety. 

 

My coaching style is light hearted and fun, but coaching will thoroughly cover safety, best practise and most importantly the basic skills you need to catch a fish during your lesson.  So that you can experience the unique thrill I still get when a trout takes the fly.

I am a member of the Angling Trust, Fly Fishers International and the British Fly Casting Club.

When I am not coaching, I am fishing!!
