Introduced to fishing at a very young age by his father, Richie was tying flies by the age of 11. That’s been a long 28 years fishing for rainbow trout, brown trout and – he hopes – this year, a lot more sea trout. He has tied and tried so many types of flies over the years. Anything “new” or re-discovered that comes along… he must tie it. A new material? He feels the need to use it. An addiction, perhaps. A fully paid up member of Fly Tyer’s Anonymous which he believes has a huge membership!
