Casting instructor North Yorkshire
looking for a casting instructor in North Yorkshire not to far from east Coast preferred I live in Scarborough . Double handed and single handed ideally. Who do you guys recommend that isn't a four hour drive away?

The easiest option is Brian Towers - Yorkshire Fly Casting - who operates primarily on the Ure but may well come further in your direction. He is a thoroughly nice chap, very personable and good at his job.

I can walk around fine every day and wouldn't consider myself seriously disabled by any means. I have pain every day but to varying degrees and my mobility is better some days than others.
Its difficult with the teaching because the river bank isn't a great place for me to be at the minute, Im not able to move as quickly as I have been so the risk of a slip or fall that could cause me further problems is there. I also found that in the last couple of years there would be days when a lesson had to be cancelled because I wasn't in as good a shape as I felt I needed to be. Add to that a shoulder surgery last April that went badly wrong and left me with maybe 50% movement in my right shoulder for most of last year and it lead me to the decision it was best to no offer and lessons until Im better. My shoulder is now up to 90% so that problem has all but gone now.
I have also been focusing more and more on my other business of building custom rifles.
A workshop environment is far easier for me to remain productive with relatively less movement and if I get pain I can always sit down and rest or take time off as needed.
Because I wasn't physically comfortable on the river it was always going to be hard for me to keep up-to-date with everything thats was going on. It also became clear I didn't want to sit forever at a desk managing this forum when I wasn't doing it in the real world, this was a major reason why I sold SFF and moved in another direction.
Im far from dead and I will teach again as/when Im ready but not to the extent I used to.
