Well into my...

Gary sadly passed away on the 1st of September 2014. He will be very sadly missed by all the family, friends and the many people that he taught to fish and guided round the rivers of yorkshire.


We have decided to leave this site in place for people to view Gary's blogs and photographs from his fishing adventures.



Hello and welcome to West Yorkshire fly fishing services web site, I hope you find it interesting, informative and easy to navigate around. My name is Gary Hyde and I am the owner and operator of West Yorkshire fly fishing services. I offer fly fishing instruction and guiding services on the rivers and still waters in and around the West Yorkshire region. I also offer a high quality fly tying service, tying a selection of flies using the highest quality hooks and materials.

My aim is to offer a quality personal service to my customers, tailored to meet their individual needs and requirements whether purchasing flies or spending a day with me on the water.

Not many fly fishers associate West Yorkshire with 1st class fly fishing for wild Trout and Grayling, usually its old mills and canals that come to mind. Come and spend a day with me on one of the rivers/stillwaters in the area and be pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fishing and outstanding locations, some within 15 minutes of the M62 motorway.  

Why not try the Urban River experience, and sample the quality of the fishing, in these once polluted lifeless rivers. You will be pleasantly surprised.
