Jim’s Biography

I live in Glasgow Scotland where I was born and grew up.I started fishing in my local canal for perch and roach when I was about 12, forty years ago. I started fly tying at about 14 after I watched a program on TV. I first tied without a vice as I could not afford one. My flies were quite crude to say the least and I can remember the first trout I caught on a small black dry fly. I could not believe it had actually taken my fly. That fish was only about 8 inches, but remains the best fish I have ever caught. These days with the advancing years, I spend more time at the vice than fishing but find fly tying just as enjoyable as fly fishing.
