Without a doubt, the finest tier or the salmon fly I've met, absolutely stunning.It's well worth a look at his page. Gordon Armstrong, Head Ghillie, Ness Castle Lodge
An absolute treat to have a local angler of such quality tying flies of such perfection, found PG flies via word-of-mouth from anglers on local rivers, ordering was made super easy with Paul's friendliness, knowlegde and williness to help to get the order i was happy with, communication through the tying process and photo confirmation sent to confirm a few added flies to the order was second to none! Close inspection of the order after arrival soon revealed true quality and perfection tying of someone clearly passionate about what he sends out. A truly honest recommendation of PG flies can be giving to anyone looking to upgrade there salmon box. Looking forward to my next order. Desy, Magheralin, Northern Ireland
Just received a set of flies from Paul. 4 of his own variants which I had asked him to tie up really slim and sparsely tied which are simply stunning. Yet even on these very small flies the attention to detail is amazing !! Kieran Conlon, Professional Game Angling Instructor and Guide. Member of Guideline Flyfishing's Power Team, Ireland.
Paul, the flies look as good in real life as they do on the website! Great service from start to finish and the curries cascade looks deadly. I will be back for another order shortly as I suspect you're going to be busy! Thanks and good luck, Graham Turner, Templepatrick, County Antrim
I have been a Spey fisherman for many years now. I am a professionally sponsored fly fisher thanks to the photography that has illustrated this great sports exploits. The demands of being a hunter on the water means you endure a lot of the elements. You want every piece of equipment to give you confidence. I've used every type of fly. Many flies are simply eye candy. Paul's flies are unequivocally the most artistic, functional, durable, and effective. In order for them to survive the brutality of not just the Spey rod cast but the repeated slams from large fish jaws, rocks, water fauna, and fast flowing water they have to be tough as nails. Paul and I became fast friends as he is very professional and personable. The first delivery of his flies from half way around the world, had me lay each one out on my table like they were precious jewelry from some kind of heist. I inspected each of them with detail and excitement wondering what they might yield. The renown flies of the Pacific North West don't compare in materials, durability, or fishing properties and often cost more Paul responds quickly and always invites discussion on what my expectations are so he can meet them. You really couldn't ask for more for custom flies and I have compared them all. My only hope is one day soon he and I will share his local waters together, fishing the flies that brought two people from different parts of the world together Great work Paul, thank you for your functional art.
