About Me

Hi everyone

                      my name is phil jones  i come from preston in  lancashire uk  married to Alli   i got into fly tying by default  after i was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis  

    before i had to finish work i was a painter/decorator with a love of pike fishing i have fished all over the uk but my fave place has got to be lough derg  a fantastic place hopefully i will be back there at some point as ive never had a 20lb pike from there   ive been close  on a few occasions

   after diagnosis i kept working for a year or so but i was having a lot of relapses my neurologist suggested i finished work  so i  sold most of my course fishing tackle as money was tight and gave up fishing as walking to the places i liked to fish wasnt an option

   a mate of mine suggested i try trout fishing  so i gave it a go  caught nothing   but some of the local trout lakes near me had nice carparks little walking, and places to sit and make a brew  far better than struggelling around rydal water or grassmere at dawn in winter  in one of the huts was an advert for fly tying as i had no idea what fly to use i thought id give it a go , it was the best thing ive ever done  ,  now i am an addicted slightley obsessed fly tyer but it keeps me busy  trying to tie these things  

    best wishes
