About us… About our products

Greetings! Thank you for honoring us with your visit.

This is a small family business made by two people who had put forward what they had most precious: childhood memories, Fly Fishing and Leathercraft.

From left to right: My uncle, Remus, my older brother, Romulus and my father, Romulus in 70s. I was just learning to walk ...

My name is Remus Stanescu and i was born in a small town from Transylvania located at the confluence of two rivers: Somesul Mare River and Somesul Mic River. In my family the passion for fishing started with my grandmother. She took her three boys fishing without knowing my grandfather; my father was the youngest of them. At that time it was considered a shame to fish because only the poorest, who had nothing to eat, went fishing. So, breaking the social taboo she created a “clan” of fishermen: uncles, cousins, brothers…..mothers. Unfortunatelly, I didn’t get to know her because she died shortly after my birth.

What beautiful summers i have spent on Somes Riverside … with my “clan”

Spinning in the 60s was something that no one understood. Flyfishing in the rivers populated with asp, pike, chub was an incomprehensible concept in the 80s-90s. All of this together were made by my father and his brothers, and by my brother….

My need of making something linked to fishing is equal with the one of those who make rods or flyties.

After years of searching i have found something for me….

My love for fishing is what offer in this business.


My name is Catalina and i was born in the other side of the country in a beautiful land named Dobrogea, on the Black Sea seashore. I have spent some of the happiest moments of my childhood in my father’s leathercraft workshop in the smell of leather and glue, watching with curiosity what happened around me. As a child i  was fascinated of the sound made by the sewing machines as if it was a secret code and by the way my father handled the leather cutting knife. It seems that my education at the law school was not for me 🙂

 Festina lente – Make haste slowly

Leather carved mayfly

Being a small business based on our passions the production is limited and based on orders. Each product is made with great attention and with no hurry.


–  we use only Italian leather, bought from Tuscany , a region with great tradition in tanning.

–  “dyeing the leather is an art, not a science” so there won’t be two identical products

–  manual stitching with two needles gives a precious look  and more important durability to our products.

–  carving by hand gives an unique style and cannot be imitated by any other machine. Beside our themes linked to nature or inspired by our clients, with some limitations, our products can be personalised with monograms, logos, etc

Our wish  is to make something unique from every order.
