As a passionated Fly Fisher and Mechanical Engineer with over 40 years of
Fly Fishing experience, in teaching (guiding ,tying, casting ) & also designing
gear for some well known brands. I have come to the realization that it is time
for me to Pursue the next phase of my passion by introducing my very own line
of gear. Thus for creating a business while still harboring my Love of the sport!
I have been inspired by the people I've met along the way, and I am grateful for
the experiences that have enriched More so my love for my passion!
I started tying flies at the age of twelve. In the very beginning I held the hook between my fingers and only
possessed one tying tool, which was a dubbing needle, that being a sewing needle from my mom's sewing
box. I used it for vanishing the head of the fly, and for splitting wing feathers for wet and dry flies. Later on,
I acquired my first fly tying vice. A simple piece of equipment, but for me, a big improvement. My flies looked
much better. Now, the hackle was not squashed between my finger tips, but was positioned accurately
with the right tension from the tying thread. The fly head was easier to make, and varnishing became more
precise. The next tool I learned how to use was a whip finisher, a strange looking thing until I learned how to
use it correctly, but today an indispensable item . A pair of hackle pliars and a bobbin, were next in line. Later
in my career I started tying flies for several different tackle shops. Tying a handsome fly it is not only a matter
of patterns and materials, but also of having the right tools for the job, and which in addition should be a
pleasure to use. All through my fly fishing life I’ve always dreamed of creating my very own fly tying tool, and
then to share it with my fly fishing collegues. Now it’s not just a dream anymore, but reality! In the future I’ll
be doing my best to develop new and innovative fly tying tools, that will make your fly tying easier and more
