Where it all started
I was born in the small village of Nanda near the Gwayi River at Tsholotsho in Zimbabwe. Since joining FlyCastaway I have become engrossed with the concept of successfully landing large fish on fly. This has lead to me to take a serious interest in fly tying and after one or two attempts managed to tie my first #6 Pillow Talk for the infamous Bonefish of St Brandon’s. Since that fateful day I have tied flies for a whole host of different species, including Tigerfish, GT’s, Indo-Pacific Permit, Triggerfish and many more.
Since picking up my first bobbin and thread I have really enjoyed the challenge of tying flies. Added to this, producing flies which consistently outwit trophy fish is as rewarding an experience as you are likely to find. I hope to continue tying top quality flies for many years to come!
