About Neil

Fly-fishing has always been Neil Houlding’s life long pursuit. By 18 years of age, Neil’s passion for a two-hand rod had already begun to coalesce.  He spent many hours honing his skills on rivers such as the Lune and Ribble not far from his home in Lancashire, England.  Moving to Canada, he continued his pursuit of fishing the fly. His travels have taken him as far as the Gaula River in Norway and the River Spey in Scotland.  Neil is an accomplished Guide, who is also a certified casting instructor with the Fly Fishing Federation, Attaining the CI and THCI certification, and furthermore, coached the inaugural “World Youth Fly-Fishing Championships” in Wales.  Neil has applied his enthusiasm and ability as a teacher

This was after returning from his trip to last year’s Spey Nation.  Just one example of the good mojo that gets spread around thick at The Nation.
