Robin Spaight

Robin has lived in rural Lincolnshire, United Kingdom with his family for the last 30 years.
He started fishing in 1982 in the south of England. He is predominately a freshwater flytyer / fisherman who has had the opportunity to fish in some of the most beautiful places in the UK and abroad. Most of his fishing has been on English chalk streams / large reservoirs and the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. Robin has been tying since 1990 where he was taught by his father and other international tyers who were passing through when visiting the UK for shows. Huge influences on early tying were Oliver Edwards (UK) and Mike Martinak (USA) who he spent a number of hours learning the craft of fly-tying.
Robin was one of the founder members of the Lincolnshire Featherbenders, He is currently the Secretary of the Lincolnshire branch of the Fly Dressers Guild and is currently Events secretary for the Fly Dressers Guild in the UK. Robin is also the founder along with his Son of Fly-tying for Autism in the UK who provide bespoke fly-tying lessons for children and young adults with autism.
Robin has been using Renomed scissors for the last 20 years.
While he ties all types of flies, he especially enjoys classic wet flies and experimenting with new synthetic materials.
