John Stephens


John started shooting shotguns and also fly fishing at the age of 10. He was lucky enough to be allowed to shoot and fish at school, this was when it was ok for pupils to take a gun to school!

John’s career has passed through many different areas including Hotel Management, Engineering and finally into Software where he was Assistant Vice President for an American Software company. After retiring from the software industry John decided to share his passion for shooting and fishing by becoming a freelance instructor in both.

John is a member of the Association of Professional Shooting Instructors and has been working as a freelance instructor at Bisley since 2006.

John’s past interests have included flying helicopters and Kart Racing, however when he is not instructing at Bisley he can now generally be found on a chalk stream somewhere!
