Fabrizio Gajardoni - joins the team!

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Fabrizio Gajardoni has become a member of the BUG-BOND™ Pro-Tying Team. Fabrizio is one of those fly-tyers I admire who can turn his hand to any fly, be it wet, dry, salmon, pike, realistic or saltwater. A very talented tyer...

I include Fabrizio's own biography and photos of the man himself along with some of his recent Bug-Bond crab creations... If you are in Italy and visiting 8° SIM FLY FESTIVAL 2011Castel di Sangro (AQ) 18 e 19 giugno 2011 do find Fabrizio and say "Hello"

Fabrizio Gajardoni was born in Rimini, Italy.

He has been fly fishing and tying since 1982. He is an innovative creator of several dressing and he is known for his versatility with every sort of fly, from the dries to pike and bass flies, from nymphs to saltwater flies, from realistic to full dress for salmon.

He contributed with the Italian magazine Sedge & Mayfly and with the American Art of Angling Journal by P. Schmookler.

His works are described on the first volume of Fly Tyers of The World by Steve Thornton

Fabrizio also features on the CD Realistic Fly Tyers by the Canadian tyer D. Beamish. Recently he attended a couple of editions of the Fly Fishing Show in Somerset (USA). He participated in the Mustad Scandinavian Open from 1997 till 2003 where he won 2 gold, 2 silver and 4 bronze medals in the various categories. His flies can be found on his website
