Peter Hartley
Peter has instructed at Elinor for several seasons. He is a level 2 coarse and game angling instructor and a member of the Game Angling Instructors Association, (GAIA) and holds Fishcoach licence number: 00693.

He believes that many anglers could greatly improve their performance at Elinor, which he considers to be one of the best small stillwaters, if they concentrated on their casting technique. Poor presentation, particularly from the bank, often results in low catch returns.

He has fly fished for more years than he cares to remember, but has much experience of many UK rivers and large reservoirs. Beginners, improvers and indeed advanced flyfishers can benefit from tuition. He is also available for guiding from both the bank and boat.

Peter is also a keen competition angler and after fishing in five CEFF National Finals, over an eight year period, in 2006 qualified for a place in the England Lochstyle team for 2007. This team won the Home International Gold medal in the spring of 2007, on Rutland Water.
