Louis Veya

Louis Veya , after being instructed by Georges Joset, began to tie CDC in the forties. He soon changed some patterns. The silk bodies were replaced mostly by rafia/ Swisstraw, colored in special colors. His idea, that rafia does not change the color when wet, proofed to be right- his flies, not only the CDC but also the Swiss straw rafia body sedges were tremenduosly successful- and still are today.

Veya flies were made for sale since 1942 by the members of the family. They were sold directly by Veya in his shop, but also to flyshops in Switzerland or via distributors like Jenzer Basle.
