Gareth Lewis's fishing is firmly rooted in the world of small stream tributaries and the larger free-stone waters of the Wye, Usk, and Taff catchments and, likewise, his tying is matched to suit. Introduced to fly fishing by his father when he was 10 years old, Gareth caught the fly tying bug a few months later. Since then, Gareth has tied and demonstrated at a range of national shows, including the British Fly Fair International, Welsh Fly Fair, North Wales Country Fair, and various Fly Dressers Guild evenings, and is passionate in conveying knowledge and teaching via guided trips and casting lessons.
