Dougie Loughridge
Dougie has been tying for over 18 years. He cut his fly fishing teeth on lochs, rivers and small stillwaters chasing Rainbows, Brownies and Grayling but his true passion these days is for Pike on the fly. This has become his main focus over the last few years and he likes nothing more than drifting in his float tube stalking the big, hard fighting Pike from waters big and small all over the country. Dougie will be tying Trout and Pike patterns instore on the 6th of December 2014. You can see and buy the flies Dougie designs for Fulling Mill here.
