LawrenceWelcome to the Betterflycasting website. Betterflycasting is run by Lawrence Meechan and is based in Central Scotland.

Lawrence has been fishing for over 40 years. Initially, like a lot of people learning to trot a worm and spin for trout before taking up fly fishing in his early teens.

Having a background in training within the Financial Services industry, prompted Lawrence to want to help others learn fly casting and enjoy the wonderful experience of this without having the frustrations of learning it the hard way.

Therefore Lawrence began studying for a Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Angling and became an angling coach for his local fishing club.

Taking this further then Lawrence gained the Scottish Game Anglers Instructors Certificate in Single Handed Fly Casting and can now teach a wide range of fly fishing techniques from basic roll casts to Spey Casting with the singled handed rod.

Lawrence also holds qualifications in electro-fishing techniques and river fly monitoring.

He continues to develop his knowledge and teaching techniques and is working towards completion of the International Fly Fishing Federation (IFFF) Master Fly Casting Instructors Certificate in 2015.

Tuition can cover a variety of topics e.g. a beginners course or tailored to suit your requirements e.g. Spey casting with a single handed rod. Please visit our website regularly as it will be updated with tips and news. Tight Lines.
