Living in Kilwinning, North Ayrshire Paul started fly fishing at the age of 11, tying his first flies almost as soon as he picked up his fly rod. The obsession began with rainbow trout fishing then progressed on to fly fishing for salmon on the spate rivers around Ayrshire. As the obsession grew so did the species and the destinations, Bonefish fishing in Mexico, Hawaii, Christmas Island and the Bahamas to fly fishing for wild brown trout and Pollock in the north of Scotland.
These days most of his time is spent chasing pike on the fly. Enjoying all aspects of fly fishing for pike from fishing the huge wild waters of Scotland or walking the lengths off a Fenland drain or river, but his real passion is hunting monster pike on the southern trout reservoirs. To date, Paul's landed four pike over the magical 30lb mark on the fly, the biggest being 36lb in weight.
This obsession with pike lead him to designing a whole series of flies that are fit for purpose. He has also been a long standing member of the pike fly fishing association, this has seen him hold the role of Scotland RO and most recently take on the position as chairman. Pike fly fishing is a huge part of his life and he now finds himself travelling further afield to satisfy his pike needs. The northern pike of Canada are firmly set in his sights.
Paul is very excited about working along side such a well established company as Fulling Mill and looks forward to passing on his pike fly fishing knowledge. The first pike flies that will be available are his GO TO patterns that have landed himself and friends many large pike.
