Fly Fishing and Tying Market Size?


I'm doing a business plan for a friend and as part of a normal business analyses I need to try and determine the size of the potential market for a product.

I've tried looking for official stats but I'm not having luck.

1) What is the estimated number of active fly fishers in the World today?
2) What % (or number) of fly fishers actively tie flies?

My friend makes a tool for fly tying hence my question. I'm trying to see how large the fly tying community (Worldwide) is...

Any info or suggestions for determining the size would be appreciated.
