The Franc n snaelda brand is the brainchild of River Dee ghillie Sean Stanton, creator of the Franc N Snaelda fly.
He and his wife Tracey produce the products together at their premises in Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The fact that Sean is a full-time ghillie means this is truly a family affair.
Sean is a prolific tier who was finding it increasingly difficult 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.
