I started fly tying following an accident that saw me laid up with an ankle to thing plaster on my leg. I was given a rod building kit and when completed it turned out to be a fly rod. I bought some flies and though they were expensive. I decided to tie my own to save money. I am now sitting on £10,000 worth of materials plus a few hundred thousand hooks.
I do a lot of coarse match fishing and competition loch style angling, I also dabble in small pond and predator fishing. My real love is tropical saltwater fishing in Florida.
