Coming into the 2015 season Carty’s Land and Sea Sports are proud to welcome Denny Brennan to our team of pro fly tiers . Denny from Cookstown Co Tyrone is a well known and respected fly tier and has over the years tied at many big international events such as the Irish fly fair . He is rated by many including angling journalist and fly tier Declan Tuffy as being the best commercial fly tier in the world . Quote “I first met Denny a few years ago , but I had known of his work for years before that . Over the years I admired trays of his flies but never had the privilege to meet him . As I was doing a tying demonstration one day , Denny quietly approached the bench and asked what sort of capes I was using . I said I use many different types and introduced myself . He told me his name . I stood up and asked him to come behind the bench and show me how he ties such lovely flies . He is a gentleman and I liked him from the word go . A humble man , when I marvelled at his work , he just smiled and said , Declan there just flies .

Once or twice in a lifetime you come across a fly tier that will just blow you away ; a tier of such quality who produces flies that are not only cloned but are tied to perfection . Everything about his work , the proportions , colour , style and fishability are so good that it could make fellow fly tiers cry and wish they could tie like him . I remember having a conversation with well known American tier Chris Helm who said to me that you can consider yourself a good tier when you have tied at least 10,000 flies . I agreed and when I asked Denny to put a number on how many flies he has tied , he put a conservative estimate of 250,000 to date .This is by any standard , a phenomenal body of work . It is no wonder that , in my view he is the best commercial fly tier that I have ever seen and I would argue that he is the best commercial tier in the world today. ”
