Stuart has been fly fishing and fly tying for nearly 40 years. After pulling cotton out of his mom's sewing kit,hooks out of his dad's coarse fishing basket and feathers out of his pillow he was bought a tying kit for Christmas......and hasn't stopped tying since.
Spending many of his childhood holidays in Scotland fishing many of the countries rivers and lochs, Stuart has also fished in Alaska, Argentina, Canada and Norway. In British Columbia he found his passion......steelhead. Becoming obsessed with the new designs of large steelhead patterns as well as the revolution of using old Dee and Spey style patterns in this aspect of the sport.
Stuart now looks forward to sharing his love of fly fishing with new comers to the sport and enjoys teaching tying as well as encouraging folks to try new tying techniques and patterns on social media.
