Another day, a customer was standing outside my shop, waiting for me to open. I greeted him and noticed that he was holding a bag from my shop.

40,000 flies (more than 140 different types of flies) are tied every year in Alain Barthélemy’s workshop. This shows how dynamic this Dutch company has become in a few years, succeeding in gaining the most demanding fly-fishers’ confidence. As a matter of fact, Alain Barthélemy, whose taste for perfection is as strong as his passion for fly-fishing, makes it a point of honor to tie every single fly imitation himself. LINK
