The websites concept was originally conceived whilst fishing a small Wiltshire river in late 2010. I had got to the bank and was tackling up and just about to head into the river, when I realised that I had left my forceps (used to de-barb my flies) back at home. The thought then struck me that it was nearly impossible to buy ready-made barbless flies of sufficient quality from any of the normal online retailers (when did you last buy any flies from a tackle shop!). After further thought I then promptly did nothing and completely forgot about it!
