Hi, my name is Dougie Loughridge. I’m based in Central Scotland. I am looking forward to tying at the BFFI and it’s a great honour to be there, alongside many of the Worlds finest.
I’ve been tying my own flies pretty much since I first picked up a flyrod in my early teens. I cut my flyfishing teeth on Lochs, Rivers and small stillwaters chasing Rainbows, Brownies and Grayling. Indeed, in this part of the UK we are blessed with access to some of the finest Game fishing in the UK but its old Esox herself, the Pike, who holds a special place in my heart.
At the BFFI this year I will be tying my favourite Pike, Predator and Saltwater flies so please come along and say Hi if predators float your boat!
