It's a Family Affair is the brainchild of River Dee ghillie Sean Stanton, creator of the Franc N Snaelda fly.

He and his wife Tracey, run this salmon fly, fly-tying and material store together from their home in Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The fact that Sean is a full-time ghillie, means this is truly a family affair – their two children can be quite often found stripping hackles and counting tubes!

As you may know, Sean is a prolific tier but was finding it harder and harder to access good quality materials. To overcome this issue he decided to design and manufacture his own range of affordable, quality materials. Thus the Sean Stanton Signature Tubes were born , the first in the range of many signature materials to be developed.
