In response to increasing demand from regular clients, I’m now able to offer something truly different in terms of BOAT FISHING.  I’ve teamed up with one of the best professional skippers in Cornwall to offer an exclusive boat fishing experience. Although the 38 foot, state of the art boat can take up to 12 anglers, we are taking smaller groups of 2 to 6 people to give maximum space and flexibility on board. We will offer a truly unique mix of fly, spin, drop-shot and bait fishing both in the estuary, around the coast and way out to sea.


These days (or half-days) are not nearly so tide-dependant and we can be completely relaxed about booking dates. We can also ‘customise ‘these boat days for yourself or your friends. You may fancy going after specimen Bass with live Launce that you’ve caught yourself, or you may prefer to look for some really big Pollack around the reefs. At the other end of the scale, if you haven’t caught a Garfish on a 9 foot five weight, or tried up-tiding with sandeel on a floating line, you haven’t really lived!  The fishing is endlessly variable and massive fun.


A long time ago I was responsible for pioneering the ‘Light line philosophy’ in stillwater flyfishing. I’m now doing the same on saltwater. A day like this will re-define your impression of sea fishing from a boat, so if you fancy something really special, give me a call for more details!


On all our boat days, don’t be put off if you don’t possess all the gear. Obviously you’re welcome to bring you own, but remember that you can always use ours.



Chris Ogborne can be booked as your guide for fishing, walking or bird watching. He will show you the ‘secret’ Cornwall amongst the moors and valleys, take you birding along the cliffs, or introduce you to flyfishing in the ocean, the beaches or the Camel estuary.  Saltwater flyfishing is subtle, delicate art and Chris will steer you through the intricacies and show you his favourite spots, sharing two generations of  local knowledge.


All guiding bookings are on the ‘full day’ basis, from £250. This minimum fee is for two rods (so you pay a minimum £125 each) and includes your guiding, transport, lunch and drinks. The timing of your day will be variable, according to tides, weather and time of year.


Food can be geared entirely to your needs and will range from a Champagne breakfast through to packed lunches, BBQ, or a full dinner party. Fresh  West Country seafood is second to none and a lobster or bass on the BBQ can make for the perfect end to the perfect day.

Chris has many years of experience in the wine trade and will always be able to find that unusual or special bottle to compliment the gourmet food.
