2005 - Stu was commissioned to design and tie flies by an Auckland Real Estate company for the promotion for the selling of some NZ prime real estate life style properties. The fly designed and tied was called the Bendemeer Beauty.
2017 - Stu starts on the new, NZ Fly School building and fish tank home
Stu has to camp out during winter beside the project and live in a unheated ,box on wheels,sleeping on the floor with Trigger for the next few years.
He also learns new skills to try and keep costs down , like driving an old digger and landscaping among over stuff.
He had no water so collected rain water and washed in the nearby river and at the same time using a shipping container, somehow manged to keep his guiding operation going, fly school and online shop.
Nothing just happens, like some people think.
Years of hardship and hard work and did I mention stress. :)
