Default Irish Lough flies

After living and fishing in Ireland for over 40 years, i have finally got to where i want to be.
Achieved the qualification as an advanced fly dressing instructor with A.P.G.A.I.(Ireland).

gained my qualification in teaching.

Qualified as an internal examiner.

opened up the shop web site and fly dressing studio.

And to cap it all i was asked on Friday to be part of the Irish National team as the fly dressing adviser and supllier of materials.

Now that i am no longer tied down to a 9 to 5 job i can spend as much time in the studio designing new patterns and dyeing up natural materials until my hearts content.
I can honestly say that i am spending at least 8 hours a day 7 days a week in the studio and loving every moment of it. with visitors coming in each day i have fresh tea and coffee and a big bin of biscuits for them and i think they get a bigger thrill watching me tying up flies and telling them yarns of fishing around europe and Ireland.
Just finished off a range of new Dabblers which will be fiekd tested next week on Lough Sheelin
