Eoin Fairgrieve is widely regarded as a leading and internationally renowned speycasting instructor. Eoin has refined his teaching practice over two decades of teaching pupils all aspects of speycasting and fly fishing.  His intention is to give his pupils a clear understanding of the fundamental principles of each cast and how this can be translated into more energy-efficient fly casting.

Eoin teaches all forms of modern speycasting styles including shooting head, long-bellied and skagit casting techniques and is keen to create a positive learning environment where pupils feels comfortable and able to realise their full casting potential.  All speycasting instruction takes place at our teaching centre near Kelso in the Scottish Borders. The centre has its own private salmon beat on the River Teviot as well as a well-stocked trout lake.  Our salmon beat has the fishing rights on both banks, allowing students the opportunity to learn double-handed casting techniques off either shoulder. The beat is 1.8 miles in length and flows through scenic grassland and woodland 3 miles upstream of Kelso. There are 11 named pools ranging from 4-10 feet in depth, with the best of the salmon fishing in the higher waters of mid to late Autumn.

Single-handed casting instruction is based at our well-stocked and newly enlarged trout lake in the grounds of the Roxburghe Hotel and Golf Course. Students can learn basic to advanced casting techniques with a single-handed rod including overhead and roll casting as well as the double haul.  There is a 40 seater lecture room and 12 seater fly dressing room, making it ideal for large group and corporate bookings.  With nine casting platforms surrounding the facility and a good head of hard fighting trout, the lake is an ideal environment to learn about all aspects of fly casting and fly fishing.
