Ian McKenzie - England

 

 

 

I retired from my position as Technical Manager for Fulling Mill Ltd, the leading fly suppliers in the UK after 17 years at the end of 2010.  My position involved developing new patterns, turning people’s ideas into commercial propositions, sourcing all necessary materials & hooks, tying samples for our wholly owned factory in Kenya, and maintaining quality standards. Since my retirement I have continued tying flies for personal customers and have even found time to tie some for myself.
That aside I have been an enthusiastic fisherman since the age of 10, living close to and fishing the Thames but graduating to fly fishing for trout at Weirwood Reservoir in Sussex at 18, and subsequently fishing around the UK for trout, salmon, and grayling.  I have been tying my own flies for the last 50 years. Recently I have also taken, in the summer, to fishing for carp on the fly – great fun!
I look forward to meeting many tyers at the show and will be happy to spend time with anybody who has specific problems and needs a hand.
