up with fly fishing friends.
What a great honour to be sitting next to the greats of fly tying and fishing, Mike Weaver and Russ Symons.
Some great Patterns coming off the old vice.
The crowds came from all around to see the action inside and out.
The Vindaloo Stoat .
This Pattern came about one
night sitting down at the vice as
the rain hit against the window.
As for the name I thank my good
friend Paul Slaney from good old
Wales who named it in time for me
to show it a Roadford 2015.

So another Season is nearly upon us and as for Roadford fly fair, this will be its 3rd year running, which is now a date in every fly fisherman's diary.This year at the fair was a special one as I had been invited to come and tie among some great fly fishing and tying greats ,like Wes Ower, Ron Wilday, Russell Symons, Mike Weaver, Charles Jardine, Alan Bithell and Gary Champion to name a few. Roadford is a great venue to hold this event, as its 700 acre Reservoir is a fantastic back drop, it also gives a great boost for the forth coming season wherever you may be fishing.
