My name is Frances Davies , I was taught to tye and cast as a child , after a long absence I returned to flyfishing eight years ago. Since then I have achieved 5 Welsh caps for the Welsh Ladies International Flyfishing Team . I fish for a team in the Celtic League on Llandegfedd which is also my local water, I have also fished a number of other prestigious competitions both as a team member and an individual.
As I enjoy competition fishing my flies are mainly tyed to international rules, I am always on the lookout for new materials to use in exsisting patterns. I tie many different types of flies, my favourites are Irish loch style, my fishing preference is for nymphs, I started tying at flyfairs just over a year ago. I have had the privilage of tying at a number of shows all of which I have realy enjoyed. I have learnt a lot and met many wonderful people and made many new friends, I am realy looking forward to being at the British flyfair this year and will hopefully meet more new friends
