I first got introduced to fly fishing through my dad and a family friend whilst on a weekend away in our caravan at Carsington Water in Derbyshire about 5 years ago, he asked me if I wanted to join them on the boat which I did. It wasn't untill I caught my first trout on the fly at a local fishery I truly became "hooked" on fly fishing. 

After watching hours of fly tying on YouTube I wanted to try my hand at fly tying, I was bought a fly tying starter kit and my dads words were "you'll use it for a week and get bored" after almost three years, my fly tying collection has grown so much that I've converted the spare room into a tying room! 

I've also visited fly tying shows up and down the counry to gain more knowledge and tips to help me.
