Born, raised and still living near the banks of the river Clyde in Scotland Jim started his fishing life on one of its tributaries 30 years ago and started tying flies at the same time. With no local fly shops there wasn’t really much choice and as the only anglers he knew all tied their own flies Jim just assumed if you wanted to fly fish you learned how to tie your own flies.
