Hello, my name is Bram van Houten and I am a fly tyer based in Holland. Fly fishing and fly tying is one of my hobbies for the last 21 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, 21 years later, I still love doing this hobby. I try to make my flies unique, by giving new looks to patterns that already exist. I use because of that a lot of new materials. Later, when the fly is finished I will test it in the water. When I have got some spare time I will go to Czech Republic or Slovenia. If not, I will test nearby my house in a river or lake.
I wish everybody a lot of fun with making their own flies an trying them out in the water.
