Hello, my name is Bram van Houten and I am a fly tier based in Holland. Fly fishing and fly tying is one of my hobbies for more than 33 years. I started fly tying with Ben Pont (the patriarch of the nymph fishing in Holland). From him I learned the basics of fly tying.
Now, 33 years later, I still love doing this hobby. I try to make my flies unique, by giving new looks to patterns that already exist. Because of that I use a lot of new materials. Later, when the fly is finished I always test it on the water. Havin enough time I do this in Czech Republic or Slovenia. If not, I test them nearby my house in a river or lake.
For the people who love my flies I have a website, where you can buy some tying materials that I use a lot. You can find the website at www.dutchflytying.com.
I wish everybody a lot of fun while tying their own flies an trying them out in the water.
