Surrounded by some of the best Atlantic Salmon fishing the world has to offer I've been exposed to angling and commercial fishing all my life. Many hundreds of Salmon and thousands of trout have passed through my hands over the years including a 42lb Atlantic Salmon at the age of 16. Now 41 I'm an avid angler first and foremost who only got into tying to pass the off season.
Many thousands of hairwing wets, bugs and bombers tied and I found myself with tubs and tubs of new flies that I couldn't possibly fish I realised it was time to transition from a "flies per hour" approach to a "hours per fly" approach. So I ventured into Classics.
I tie for relaxation only so I don't take things too seriously. I tie almost everything with the intention that it is to be fished even the most gaudy of Traherne's. The very first Classic I tied was a 3/0 Jungle Don and seem to have an affinity for full feather wing flies the most.
