First fly fished in 1958. Started as a professional fly tyer in the 60s, moved on to setting up a mail order company for fly fishing products in the early 70s.
From then on developed, manufactured and marketed fly fishing products world wide. Became a consultant to many other fly fishing product manufacturers,
technical director for the Patridge hook company and so on,to long to list them all. I have travelled the world extensivly in my profession, for the purposes
of teaching fly fishing, and related subjects Featured on many national and international fly fishing TV networks, produced my own series of fly fishing video
and DVD programmes. Am currently working with the second DVD, How to Series, with Fly Fish TV. The first, Wet Fly Ways is now on the market. Nymph fishing from
basic to advanced will be no 2. That will show all the techniques that are common practice here in the USA and those we use in the UK and EU. Write extensivly
for fly fishing sites, international publications, Travel to various fly fishing organsations in the country as a presenter and speaker. Was the International
coach for the American youth international team in 98 and 99, when we won silver and gold medals. I fished as a team member at Internationl level for my
country Wales for many years, as well as many other fly fishing events, I took part in some of which l won outright. Fly casting was at one time so far as
tournament casting a great interest for me and did real well at that,won a few also at that time. Many of the fly patterns that l innovated are commercially
available around the world. Probably one of my most personal interests is the historical evolution of fly fishing, the coming into being of how and why fly
patterns were originated back in the UK, which are my homelands I have been party to and very involved with many organisations related to matters of
conservation for the well being of trout habitat. Have many credentials so far as the eduation of fly fishing, casting, fishing, tying and all that. I guess
the bottom line is l live for what the world of fly fishing offers. Currently own the American International school of fly fishing /guide and outfitter service
for the White river region Have many sponsors from fly fishing product manufactures and others.
