Damian Robinson – Co-designer & manufacturer.
Damian has been involved in angling from an early age, spending his younger years coarse fishing in and around Staffordshire. In 2014 he was introduced to fly fishing through a friend and began to learn the arts of the sport, honing his skills on the River Dove in Ashbourne. Damian quickly realised his enjoyment of fly fishing and began reaching out to people to learn and get better, taking time to understand the entomology of the river. He is a very keen fly tyer and now makes all of his own flies. He enjoys meeting people as well as travelling to fish the rivers around the UK.
Damian is a qualified mechanical engineer and has used his skills and know how to help develop the catch and release net with Glen and produce a high quality product. In 2017 Damian and his wife relocated to Montana USA with work and continued to fly fish on the rivers in and around Bozeman.
This unfortunately meant a break from producing nets, but in 2020 Damian returned to the UK and began work on the Mark 5 net which was made available by the end of the year.
