Fully Qualified National Federation of Anglers Coach

Expert Angling Tuition


My name is James Anderson and I am a fully qualified National Federation of Anglers coach.

I have been fishing for most of my life and have a huge passion for the sport landing numerous specimen fish including double figure tench, 15lb plus bream, 20lb plus pike and UK carp to over 50lbs. Having learnt many skills over my angling career so far, I have been carrying out angling tutorials since 2007.


I have a BSc in Fishery Management and Aquaculture and currently teach fishery studies at Otley College, Suffolk. This means I have a great understanding of fish biology, behaviour and the freshwater environment. I also feature regularly in publications such as CARpology, Anglers Mail and Improve Your Coarse Fishing as well as in fishing competitions such as the UK Carp Cup.

Learn to fish

If you come on a tutorial with me I will ensure you learn and improve the areas of your angling that you aim to. I do not fish myself unlike many other anglers offering tutorials and improving your angling will be my only focus.

I have completed a National Federation of Anglers level 2 certificate in coaching angling and also gained a Professional Graduate Degree in Education. This means I have a wide range of skills and knowledge that enable me to teach in a manner that meets your needs perfectly.

I have attended a good practice in child protection course, have been checked by the criminal records bureau, hold a valid first aid certificate and I hold appropriate insurance cover for the purpose of coaching angling.
