2005 - Stu was commissioned to design and tie flies by an Auckland Real Estate company for the promotion for the selling of some NZ prime real estate life style properties. The fly designed and tied was called the Bendemeer Beauty.
2018- The fly school /house takes shape
Working all day every day during winter and then before guiding and after guiding at night. With lots of frustration and hold ups and money issues (that part is normal !). It starts to come together.
