A passion for fishing developed from watching my father fly fish for trout on the banks of the River Strule in Co Tyrone near my mum's family home and for brook brownies at Tal-y-Bont not far from the site of my great-grandfather's smithy.

Top water action...
Going through my images of Chew this image stands out for me... it is the epitome of the pike and its single fingered salute to the world "I'm the boss here!" It is a class piece of top water action on Toby's fly. I have so many images in my head of Chew and that day.
I'm not the world's greatest fly caster... I consider myself more of a hunter! I'll be transferring some of the images I took on good old 35mm shortly it'll illustrate the point better.
