Our Story

Hello again and thank you for taking the time out to discover more about Fishing Mugs UK.

Who is Fishing Mugs UK?

We are currently a two-man business run by a couple of 60-somethings in the North East of England.

We are David Miller and Dave Foster. We’ve been good mates for nigh on 30 years and between us have a tad over 80 years business experience. David Miller in the hospitality and training industries, and Dave Foster in the media and design fields.

One of the most coveted (and amazingly creative) pieces of fishing equipment is the fishing fly and Fishing Mugs UK is a joint project we set up in 2020 to create fine art mugs and wall art from some of the very best examples of fishing flies in collaboration with some of the world’s finest fly tiers.

The aim is to make these beautiful works of art available to fishing enthusiasts and indeed anyone who appreciates the skill and craftsmanship that goes into every single fishing fly.

David Miller takes care of the business side of things, including distribution and customer contact, whilst Dave Foster focusses on designed and production, although (like any small operation) we do cross over from one task to another.

We’re also on a mission to help educate/inform fishers and non-fishers alike as to how flies are created and how they have developed over the centuries with an historic record of fly tying in the form of fishing fly facts,  a FREE app we will be adding to the website soon.

So, in a nutshell, that is what we currently offer and have planned for the near future, but now it’s over to you. What would you like to see us create for you using our resources? Leave a comment in the section below and let’s have your thoughts and requests. We’ll take all queries and suggestions onboard and do our best to help out!

All the very best and tight lines.

David Miller and Dave Foster.
