I started Cookshill Fly Tying in 1998. Prior to that I had been a very active fly tyer and also spent a fair bit of time shooting and helping out on various shoots. It did not take long to realise that the feathers and fur that could be resourced yourself were often far superior in quality to those that could be purchased from the dealers.
The focus of Cookshill is high quality natural materials with particular emphasis on U.K. origin materials. The majority of these are resourced, selected and packaged by myself and hopefully this is reflected in the quality. A particular specialism are the full gamebird skins which are widely regarded as being some of the finest available.
