Blog, news and reviews from Snowdonia Fly Fishing Guides
During the BFFI, I spent some time at the Fly Tying Company stand. James and his team were happy to help all visitors to their stand and give good advice, always with a smile. This family run company sells an extensive range of fly tying materials and tools as well as an ever expanding selection of fly fishing tackle, accessories and clothing.
I was delighted to see they now stock Trout Hunter tippet material as this isn't easy to get hold of in the UK (I'll be posting my review shortly).
Well done to all at The Fly Tying Company.
