My name is Ceri Thomas. Born in Cardiff, South Wales, I have been fly fishing and exploring out of the way places throughout Wales and beyond since 1991.

We are blessed in Wales with wild brown trout, which thrive in our beautiful rivers and streams. Of all the many species I’ve fished for, they remain my favourite.

For me getting away from the crowds and finding your own fishing is part of the adventure. I have fished over 120 lakes and more than 60 rivers in Wales to date, many of which are hidden gems well off the beaten track.

For a day out that you will never forget, please feel free to get in touch with me for a guided session, fly fishing on our many wild rivers and lakes.


Or DM me on social media. Instagram or Twitter.

Tightlines, Ceri
