Ryan Houston Ryan Houston – I am a Veterinary surgeon working in Co. Fermanagh in Northern Ireland but if I didn’t have to work I would spend all day fishing and tying flies. I grew up fishing the river Lagan and we had an active competetion scene that forced me to become innovative in my fishing and fly tying. I won the ITFFA national rivers championship and represented Ireland at age 20 then 2 years later I repeated that success.
