Specialist in Longbow and Traditional Archery for over 33 years.
(August 8th 1982 to be exact!)
Expert Longbow and traditional bow tuition with Carol, 19 times NFAS champion.
I have specialised in supplying traditional archery equipment to Field and Target archers for over 30 years. As an archer myself I can provide help and advice on all aspects of traditional archery from selecting a suitable bow to ‘matching arrows to you and your bow’.
(Arrow matching is so much more important than most people realise!)
Unless they match how YOU shoot, then you’ll never hit the target with any consistency. Please don’t use rubbish for practice… ‘it ain’t gonna work’
So, if you are having trouble matching arrows to you and your bow, I have most sizes of arrow made up for you to try out, from ¼” to 11⁄32. Its not often a larger diameter arrow shaft is needed for field or target, unless you’re shooting 100lb plus…..!
Although I am a qualified National Field Archery Society coach, I do teach target as well. Beginners are always welcome, as well as those who need a ‘top-up’ and, when its all going pear-shaped(!), help to get you back on track.
Give me a ring to book your one-to-one coaching or your arrow matching session.
Gift vouchers available for lessons and equipment.
Visits to my workshop are welcome, but do always phone first in case I am teaching or been called away. I am usually open between 2pm and 7pm Tuesday to Saturday, but this can vary as I run shoots and competitions all year round.
The kettle is always on, but please bring your own biscuits – no nutty ones, thanks. Oh! And please..no more Hob-Nobs..(I’m sick of them!)
For the last ten years I’ve been trying to finish writing my book. I keep promising to finish it….but now I have the right programs to edit the photos….so hopefully!!!
INTERESTED? HOW ABOUT TAKING UP FIELD ARCHERY?
Not sure what field archery is? Take a look at the following photos. Looks like fun? It is. Being a true amateur sport all archery, especially field archery is a family day out. Once you’ve had a few lessons, either with me or at a local archery club, this is a sport that needn’t cost an arm and a leg.
Once you have the basics you can join a club, join the National Field Archery Society or the English Field Archery Association, (or both) and off you go. There is usually a shoot on somewhere within driving distance every week of the year. Entry fees are usually less than a tenner a day and some clubs don’t charge for the kids.
With field archery you get to see some fantastic countryside not usually open to the public, so you can enjoy the scenery as well.
