Ali Hutchens - Fly Tyer at The Irish Fly Fair 2018

Ali Hutchens has been a keen fisherman for the past 40 years. He started coarse fishing with his father as a young boy and was introduced to fly fishing by his grandfather. He has been fortunate enough to fish on many of Scotland's salmon rivers through his unrivalled passion for the sport. He has guided on many of the Scottish rivers and on some hidden gems. 
He is a very keen tier of salmon flies and has become well known on social media and at various fishing shows for his intruders tied taking inspiration for traditional salmon fly patterns. Ali has tied at many events and has written articles for many magazines, including Total Flyfisher, Trout and Salmon, Chasing Silver and Todays Flyfisher on both salmon flies and end of season salmon fishing. In 2016 as a member of Scandinavian United Fly tyers (ScUFt), they released their first film "Passion Breaks Borders" whilst fishing for Salmon in Norway. The film won "Best adventure and expedition film" at Flyfest 2016. He has fished for salmon all over the UK, venturing into Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
In 2017 Ali and his good friend Jim Wennmark filmed a self sufficient expedition to fish a secret location 150km insidethe ArcticCircle. His latest ventures are exploring lost and forgotten rivers in Scotland. 
Ali will be dressing flies on the Gairha Fishery Stand at the Irish Fly Fair.
