At age 13, Aidan wowed many of the local fly tiers in the CourtenayComox area on Vancouver Island with his very efficient and effective tying skills. He exhibited a quick mind to see what works and the best way to get there and at the same time creating a pattern that did the job well and was reliable. At 15 he worked in a fly shop where he had access to much creativity and many more materials and styles to groom his many talents. Also at age 15 he was introduced to many famed Canadians tiers and from there was invited to go onto the Superfly , Vision, Beulah and Snowbee fly tyer Pro teams . His many youtube videos are widely used for some of the exciting Steelhead and Salt Water flies fished in Western Canada. Today, at age 20, you see his skills shine when tying Spey and Dee flies with the West Coast flare utilizing his special touches using Rhea, Heron, Egret, Mallard, Polar Bear, Guinea and Jungle Cock, tied on Salmon hooks.
