Irish Fly Craft

Jimmy Tyrrell – Professional Fly Dresser, Writer, Fishing GuideĀ & Casting Instructor

I tie flies professionally and run a fly tying business. I also write articles on flies and fly tying for both the Irish Angler magazine and the Irish Times newspaper.

I do fly tying exhibitions at shows and fairs around the country and also run fly tying classes. If there are any budding fly tiers out there that are interested in taking up the art of fly tying, I have several step by steps on the website as well as videos. The three flies in the pictures are from the top The Golden Olive, the Golden Olive Dabbler and the Golden Olive Mayfly. These are three fantastic traditional Irish Lough patterns that work anywhere.

A vast selection of flies is available. Everything from the smallest dry flies and nymphs to a big selection of Salmon flies. I carry a good stock of flies but if I don’t have what you need in stock I will gladly tie them for you and get them to you as quickly as possible.

Fly tying has been a passion of mine for a very long time. I tie flies every day even if it is only a couple to take fishing with. I get great satisfaction teaching the art of fly tying.

I love tying patterns of my own and experimenting with them, over the years I have come up with some very nice patterns that catch fish for me. If there is any help or advice I can pass on to you I would be only to glad to help. Perhaps you could pass on a few tips to me I love swapping ideas with people and learning different techniques.

Selling flies all over the world I have built up a network of people “Thanks” to some of the fishermen on the Irish Fly Fishing Teams who I have tied flies for. I also frame fliesand have a nice selection to choose from.

I run a Ghillie service on the local rivers for Salmon and Trout. Also providing casting tuition for beginners, tackle supplied.

I will tie flies to order and no order is too small just email me or feel free to give me a call and let me know what you require .

During the winter I run fly tying courses, anyone that is interested should contact me. Everyone is welcome from complete beginners to people who have tied before.
