I am a member of The Game Angling Instructors' Association and hold a G.A.I.C in Fly Dressing having been mentored by the late great Lawrence Finney R.I.P.
As a Galway Native I'm proud to be tying on the GAIA stand at the Irish Fly Fair for the first time and I will be tying Traditional Irish patterns. My passion for Irish Traditional patterns was influenced by Frankie McPhillips and Lawrence Finney and other Irish greats like Malone, Anderson and Rogan.
I'm now living in Cavan where I am lucky to get to fish Lough Sheelin regularly and test new patterns which I have developed. I'm looking forward to meeting new and old friends at the Irish Fly Fair and will be only too happy to give advice on fly tying techniques and also have the craic along the way.
