Jim Lees
Jim began fly fishing on a small tributary of the river Clyde in Scotland almost 30 years ago and started fly tying at the same time; He didn't realise he had a choice, and with no local fly shops he assumed if you wanted to fly fish you had to tie your own flies. It seemed natural to him there wouldn't be one without the other. With basic instructions from a friend his early efforts were crude to say the least but they caught some fish and launched a lifelong passion! This will be Jim's first ever GAC Open Weekend appearance so we hope you will give him a warm welcome!
