Marcos Prado


My name is Marcos Prado and I am 40 years old. I live in Galicia, a region in the northwest of Spain which is known as "the land of a thousand rivers". In Galicia there is an ancient tradition of fly fishing with "Gallo de León" wet flies. I have tied flies since I was 15 years old.

The particular conditions of our rivers have made me fish with various techniques, wet fly, dry fly, nymph, streamer, so I tie all kinds of flies. I have won several national and international fly tying contests tying realistic flies so my fly tying has followed several paths. Lately, I love tying classic salmon flies. The internet has given me the opportunity to interact with great fly tying masters. I'm always learning and enjoying this wonderful world.
