I’m Ashley Strutt and based in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, UK. I have fished across most of the UK mostly around Salisbury (Wiltshire), the small streams in the Severn valley and the River Usk.

Occasionally I get to travel and visit Cape Cod and the Adirondack region of the USA, Ireland (mostly Loughs Sheelin, Mask and Corrib as well as a couple of rivers) and Slovenia. These travels have meant that I tie a wide variety of flies for the different situations although I mostly tie saltwater and river flies.

This has given me good excuses to come up with experimental patterns that work according to the conditions and hatches encountered. I have a great interest in experimenting with new and unusual materials and techniques.

This will be a return visit to the British Fly Fair International and look forward to meeting new and
old friends.
