IMG_0611

In just a few hours, I will be leaving for the SIM fly festival in the small mountain village of Castel di Sangro in Italy.

I will be demonstrating tying may fly duns on the 23rd and 24th, along with some other world class fly tyres at the Italian museum of fly fishing. If you happen to be in Italy, I would not miss this show! I hope to see you all there, ciao for now…
