Irish Fly Fair 2019 Website Banner


Jan Popel - Germany

Jan lives in the city Delbrück in the north-west of Germany.
He started fly dressing about 2 ½ years ago as he wasn‘t too happy with purchased flies. With time the fly dressing became a passion and a life-style for him. Jan visited the Irish Fly Fair in Galway for the first time in 2016 and was overwhelmed and very impressed about the way everyone helps everyone. It‘s like a very big family and he loved it and is very thankful about the way he was welcomed to be a part of this great family.

This year Jan will dress some Dry Flies the Catskill Style, Hairwings Dry Flies and some old school English Patterns at the show. Jan would also thank his good friend and mentor Paul Slaney who has sent him on the right journey and introduced him to many more different and difficult styles of how to dress a fly. Jan is looking forward to meet old and new friends at the Irish Fly Fair this year.
In his own words:
"Because for me too, everything is better together. See you at Galway.“

Jan will tie flies at the Outlaw Flyfisher Stand.
