Guild Events
The main Guild and Guild Branches are present at many fly tying, country and other shows across the UK and Eire and many Branches run auctions of fly tying and fly fishing items.  On this page, we aim to list all such events for 2016.  Whether you are a Guild member or not, we'd be delighted to see you at any of our events.  


To Guild members: if your branch will be demonstrating at a show and we haven't listed it, please get in touch with Mike Doran on  If you would like the Guild to support your event by providing banners, leaflets, copies of Flydresser, planning tips, and/ or details of Guild members willing to help etc., or you would like to help out at any of our shows or events, please e-mail the details to our General Secretary, Chris Reeves, on
