About me

My name is Campbell Thomson.I have had the good fortune to have fished for Salmon all over the UK and abroad including the Kola Peninsula Russia, Iceland, Norway, B.C, Canada and recently Swedish Lapland. I have also fly fished in numerous locations both around the UK and tropical destinations including Mexico, Cuba, Mauritius, Tobago and many more.

I have recently returned back to Scotland from South East England where I was an Instructor / Sales advisor with ‘Sportfish’. The Sportfish Fly fishing school included daily casting tuition (our target was 1000 hourly lessons per year) double/single handed casting and numerous in-house events. In addition I was involved with the organising and hosting of residential fishing/casting courses in various destinations including beats on the Tweed, Towy, and Tyne. I am still active in hosting their residential courses and open weekends.

My experience with Sportfish has given me an in depth knowledge of both casting instruction at all levels and of tackle and equipment, therefore enabling me to provide high quality casting tuition for both beginners and advanced  together with expert advice on tackle/equipment.

I am also a member of the prestigious ‘Scott Mackenzie’ Pro Team, and have assisted Scott on his ‘Masterclass’ courses. I use Mackenzie rods and lines for the majority of both my tuition work and personal angling.
