Welcome to the new website for The Fly Dresser’s Guild

This is where you can join The Fly Dressers’ Guild. In addition you can find an FDG branch near you, learn about the fly tying awards and competition and much more.  You will also find a list of events where the Guild or its branches will be in attendance.

For non-members there will be regular articles, hint and tips, tutorials and news about The Fly Dressers’ Guild  its branches and activities.

For Guild members, the members only area will hold the Fly pattern Library, many more hints and tips, step by step instructions and details of members discounts.

We hope you enjoy the site and if you have any ideas for future content please contact the secretary Chris Reeves, secretary@flydressersguild.org.

We will keep you updated of our progress via twitter, the forums and the FDG Facebook page.
