Dougie is from Glasgow, Scotland where he lives with his wife and three young children. He has been fishing for over 25 years, starting out fishing for Perch and Roach on a small farm pond before quickly progressing onto fly fishing for Trout on Lochs and small stillwaters.

His targets these days are river Brown Trout and Grayling but his main passion is for Pike on the fly from both boat and float tube. Dougie is a regular at Fly fishing shows with regular invites to demonstrate tying Pike flies at Fairs and Clubs across Britain and Europe.

It is often said that Fly fishing for Predators is the fastest growing area of the sport and being part of the Senior Sales Team at Glasgow Angling Centre, Dougie sees evidence of this first hand on a daily basis -with demand for specialist tackle on the increase. In 2014 Dougie gained the Scottish Game Anglers Instructors Course single handed casting Instructor qualification and more recently became a member of the VISION flyfishing World Team.
