I have been a fisherman all my life and a fly angler for nearly 25 years. I began fly fishing at Barn Elms reservoir in West London and progressed via small stillwaters to the large reservoirs, becoming a successful competition angler. I then moved on to the challenge of chalkstreams before fishing further afield in many “destination fisheries” including Alaska, Chile, Argentina, California, The Bahamas and Florida. I fish for trout at least twice a week in the season and also hunt Pike on the local stretches of the River Thames. I started tying my own flies some 20 years ago. I was self taught and quickly realised the value of good instruction and how scarce it was so became an Instructor under the S and TA STANIC banner, later becoming part of GAIA. Since then I have taught privately and also in Adult education at my local college. My favourite flies are Chalkstream dries and Irish Loch flies but I love tying all styles and regularly tie Saltwater, Salmon and Pike flies too. I am Secretary of the Fly Dressers Guild and chairman of the Surrey branch. I have been a Whiting Pro team tier since 2005, I am also proud to be a member of the Partridge Pro team and involved maintaining the traditions of this company. I regularly demonstrate fly tying at shows in the UK and abroad last year tied at 11 shoes in Europe and the United States. I enjoy the Burton show as it not really about commerce, its more about people, fly tying and fun, all done while raising money for good causes. I am looking forwards to helping out any tier who has a problem with any aspect of their tying. Feel free to ask any questions, there are no silly questions and I’ll try not to give any silly answers, If I don’t know how to solve your problem, I bet I know someone who can.
