I started tying flies around the age of 12 to fish still water winter competitions on Lough Cowey, Northern Ireland, with my dad. Over the last few years I've been tying classic style flies - winged wet flies, Rangeley (Maine) Style streamers and Atlantic salmon flies. It's been an interesting journey through the classics, and now the vast majority of my flies are from Bergman, Malone, Saracen, Stevens, Kelson, Pryce-Tannatt, Ephemera, Hardy, Tolfrey, amongst many others. I still tie flies for fishing and with my adventure into classics, my general tying has improved immensely. I highly recommend any fly tyer to have a try at classic style flies, you will no doubt see the improvement I've seen

Originally from Craigavon, Northern Ireland, I now call Philadelphia home. Some of my streamer flies have been featured on the Streamers365 project and I've tied flies at the International Fly Tying Symposium, Somerset NJ as well as some other local expos.
