Guides and Instructors

FS Guiding are based on the beautiful Llyn Peninsula, near the popular coastal village of Abersoch. FS Guiding operates over the species rich waters of the Llyn coastline, estuarine and river systems. European Seabass being the main target, the coastal habitat offers a multitude of extremely productive tidal hotspots, which are not only just a joy to fish, but also to appreciate its extreme natural beauty.

A strong focus is also set for Mullet, Salmon, Seatrout and Pike. Salmon and Seatrout are predominately pursued on private estate waters of the Middle Welsh Dee and Pike on the rivers lower stretches.

Nigel has been an extremely passionate angler since 1985, when trolling for mackerel from the boat in cardigan bay, from then on fishing has been at the forefront of his mind, with volumes of experience fishing far flung parts of the globe.

Nigel is a Costa sunglasses pro, ambassador for Hardy, Penn, Abu Garcia, Spiderwire, Hodgman, and owner of Fresh Salt Fishing Apparel ….. Now with a strong focus on lure and fly fishing in salt, brackish and fresh waters, home and abroad. The home waters of the llyn peninsula and its coastline is a firm favorite of Nige’s and has spent decades chasing European seabass to great affect and is ready to put you on the hotspots that he has come know over the years.

He is as thrilled to see a client getting stuck into fish as he is hooking into one himself. He will do his upmost to find and hopefully connect you with your target bass regardless of your experience.
