 Yvonne Borrmann at The Irish Fly Fair
I live in Germany, have been fishing since I was 8 years old and have been fly fishing exclusively for the past 9 years. Starting fly tying at the same time I still cannot tell what I enjoy more. One thing is for sure, the combination of fly fishing and fly tying brings me forward and always gives me new ideas.

My focus lies on utility flies for European waters. I like to play with new materials, using different tying techniques and attach great importance to functionality and beauty. Moreover, I especially enjoy the challenge in finding my own unique style by trying to create new patterns from the perspective of the fish, rather than repeatedly tying known patterns. For me, fishing for wild fish with a dry fly is most appealing. On the one hand it is the most beautiful as well as on the other hand the most challenging way to fish.

Being a member of the AHREX and SEMPERFLI Pro Teams gives me the opportunity to be in constant contact with expert fly tiers on an international level, to test innovative tying materials for my patterns and to contribute with my experience. Furthermore, I represent my hobby at many trade fairs across Germany every year and benefit from the exchange with fly tiers and visitors. Demonstrating easy ways to tie effective patterns for everybody results in happy faces and great feedback for which I am very grateful. My conclusion, with basic entomological knowledge, some imagination and craftsmanship paired with my own observation of nature, fly fishing, and fly tying becomes the most beautiful hobby in the world!
