Fishing was present during all my childhood, but I started fly-fishing when I was 10 years old. The experience was just amazing from there. My passion for this sport begins to be more a way of life. At 11 I started fly-tying, just looking in fishing magazines and watching some fly-fishing TV shows.
In the beginning I tied some classic flies like Woolly's, but then I start making my own style flies - a mix of pure creativity and real fish food... many just creativity!
A few years later when I was a teenager I started on saltwater fly fishing. I grew a big passion for the sea. I am always dreaming about fishing in remote tropical destinations like the Seychelles, Maldives etc...

My fly tying passion started when I saw a big flashy saltwater pattern for the first time.
It was a FPF fly tied be Kate Howe and Bill Howe. They inspired me to tie saltwater flies for the rest of my life. Later I saw the work of other great masters like Steve Farrah, Bob Popovic , Bob Veverkas and many more.

From 2004 I started making flies as a commercial tier then and in 2011 I created my own little business called Xtremefly. Now I am a Clear Cure Goo Pro Staff member.
I collaborated on a few fly tying publications and also contributed to Tony Lolli's book "Fly Patterns by Fishing Guides" It contains 200 flies... that's a lot of work from Tony.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
