Dave Wiltshire is from Bristol, England and is both a talented fly tier and fly fisherman.

For Dave, fly fishing and tying flies draw together his interest in the outdoors, science, art and relaxation whilst offering continual, new challenges. More than that – he feels that he never stops learning.

He hopes the blog will allow him to progress even further with this, letting him post his thoughts, creations and findings about the pursuit of catching wild trout and grayling with a fly.
