Who is Alois ?
We had the pleasure to meet Alois Trübner on a fly fair in Denmark, and it sure was a very big pleasure.
Alois was tying big predator flies for pike hunting, and there was no doubt about his exceptional tying skills.
He was a very nice guy as well, allways with a smile on his face, and a nice joke or two, and we just starting talking.
Later we had to ask him to be an Easy Shrimp Eyes Elite Tyer, and he agreed to join our amazing team.
Alois is not only talented when it comes to predator flies, he also has nice skills on shrimp flies, and coast flies in general.
