"Fly fishing is both a science and an art form. Martin Langland’s is highly proficient in each of these disciplines. He has superb river knowledge and his careful studentship of insect life forms a powerful foundation for his artistic and deadly fly tying skills. When you fish with Martin, it is obvious right from the start that you are in the company of a master fisherman. His wide knowledge and interest base makes him a great companion as well as teacher. He has high expectations of you as a fisherman and this helps you to rise to the occasion. I have had the pleasure of his company for the last three seasons and look forward to many more. He has the uncanny ability to put you in touch with large numbers of quality trout. He has been able to show me a real variety of water and fishing styles. I personally appreciate his interest in the angler as a person as well as his no nonsense style. His awareness of his traditions and roots as a fisherman, where he was inspired by his dad, provide a powerful background of knowledge and passion that have carried through to his current skill level and attitude today. If you want to catch fish, but more importantly learn the intricacies of becoming a fisherman, do yourself a favour and book Martin today."  David Anderson Victoria Australia 2010
