When you sit down to tie a fly, you take a seat at a very large, very old table. As you go through the magazines, books, and videos—taking and ignoring advice, learning tricks and shortcuts, discerning and taking sides in old debates, then picking and choosing a pattern, a style, eventually even an aesthetic stance—you participate in a long, complicated, and apparently endless conversation over those and many other matters. You join not merely a club, but a guild.

This will be the third year of the this large and very interesting show. It is the only show that brings together fly fishing for all species, sea angling and lure fishing. The venue is large with plenty of free parking, the catering is excellent value and there are a host of top anglers fly tyers and personalities to meet. The Fly dressers Guild will be in attendance once again with representatives from the local Bristol and Cheltenham branches as well as committee members. We will try and solve your fly tying problems
