New Zealand Trout Fly
Martin Langlands has been commercially tying trout flies since the early 1980’s.
Many of Martin's original patterns have featured in trout fly calendars and fishing publications and are renowned by anglers New Zealand and worldwide.
The designing and crafting of trout flies is a major focus of Martin’s business and perfectly complements guiding.
Ever evolving modern patterns are inspired by the latest variety of materials, with traditional influences.
Guiding is the ultimate testing platform.
A passion and thorough knowledge of freshwater ecology coupled with an in depth familiarity of local rivers has aided in Martin’s trout fly design and success. Flies are often tied particularly suited to a specific river, or even trout, especially for clients. See more in his DVD’s.
For a 'young' country New Zealand has a lush trout fly history and culture. Martin was privileged to have been mentored by renowned Canterbury fly tiers such as R K Bragg, Al Creedon and John Morton. Passing on this tradition and knowledge is another passion.
