Martin Westbeek is an avid fly fisherman and fly tier, who loves to fish for trout, sea trout and grayling. Martin started tying in the 80s, won prizes at some fly tying competitions, and started to tie at shows and demos.
Meanwhile he has been a regular tier at shows in Britain, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and Holland. Martin also tied in the USA, Italy and Sweden, and does demos at clubs and flyshops in Holland. He is a member of the Textreme, Daiichi and Swiss CDC Pro Teams. Martin loves to talk about and show tying technique.
Flies of his appeared in books, such as the Leeson/Schollmeyer book Tying Emergers. Some of his flies are part of the Master’s Collection of the Catskills Fly Fishing Museum in the USA.

During the FlyFair Martin will tie Wulff type flies, his Paraloop Emerger and some effective CDC fly. Plus some nymphs jusdt for fun.
