Paul's passion is for dressing salmon flies, especially the classics. He enjoys dressing the grubs, Spey flies and those flies that most people have forgotten. In recent years he has given both salmon and trout fly workshops in the US and the UK and enjoys the experience very much. The important thing to Paul is mastering the basic techniques and having done so, to disseminate those skills for the benefit of other Fly dressers. http://paullittleflydresser.wordpress.com/
