My name is Andrew Laverty and I am 24 years old. My Granda taught me how to fly fish at the age of 10 and then started to tie my own flies. When I caught my first trout on my own flies, I fell in love with the art of fly tying! I have been tying flies for around 14 years now. I spent most of my teenage years fishing Lough Sheelin for wild brown trout. I tied many different patterns, dries and wets which caught many fish!
I then started tying salmon flies. Salmon fishing was not something that I had tried before. Once I caught my first salmon, on the fly… I was hooked!
My salmon flies have been catching Atlantic salmon in a number of countries including Iceland, Sweden and Canada!
You will maybe have seen me on Facebook as Andrew Laverty Fly Tying!
This will be my first time tying at a show and I’m really looking toward to it. Feel free to stop and get a chat!
