Steve Cullen is a highly motivated guide with an amazing enthusiasm for the sport of fly fishing, a sport that he has been part of from a very early age.
Brought up in the Scottish Border towns of Hawick and Galashiels, Steve had access to some wonderful wild trout and grayling fishing on both the world-famous River Tweed and its largest tributary, the Teviot. The area also has a wealth of hill lochs and small stillwater trout fisheries, all of which he visited on regular basis, before moving down to the Midlands in 2005.
Steve has fished extensively throughout Europe in search of specimen trout and grayling. He's also been fortunate enough to visit many other destinations around the world, including the warm-water havens of Mexico and Cuba.
By spending time and working alongside many outstanding and influential people in the sport, he has had great opportunities to enhance his knowledge. With the help of these people he has constantly acquired and developed various skills that have improved both his fishing and guiding abilities.
After working on Total FlyFisher, the sport’s newest and freshest fly fishing magazine, since 2005, Steve became editor in 2007. He has taken the magazine forward by incorporating many new ideas, techniques and flies from the country’s top anglers, and many from further afield.
Steve offers fly fishing guiding and instruction services on Draycote Water and the Anglian Water Reservoirs and also a wealth of fantastic venues throughout the UK. There are a myriad of small stillwaters, reservoirs and rivers to visit, all of which offer the opportunity for some scintillating sport.
Steve can offer help with all aspects of trout and grayling fishing, whether it’s targeting them up on the surface with dry flies or detecting subtle takes when nymphing in deep water. He offers sound, up-to-date advice that will help you progress as an angler.
He's an England International, current holder of the Grafham Trophy, as the best English rod in the recent Home international - and he's also the current English National Champion.
