Bob started fly-fishing 23 years ago and has been fly-tying nearly as long.

He fishes the English reservoirs and the Loughs of Ireland.For the past six years he has competed in the annual World Cup Trout Fly-fishing Championship, held on Lough Mask and in 2016 won the prize for the best overseas angler.

Bob loves to tie flies in the Irish style with materials he dyes in colours from the Irish palette. He has tied flies in the Irish style for members of both the English ladies and men’s lough style teams.

Bob has had articles on his flies published in Trout Fisherman and an introduction to dyeing published in Trout & Salmon.

He was the winner of the inaugural Trout Fisherman Fly-Master Competition. No prizes for guessing what sort of flies Bob will be tying at the show!
