Annual Raffle - August 26th, 2015
Once again a host of great prizes are on offer, topped by a Sage Accel Fly Rod valued at £499.  Tickets are only £1 and were distributed with the Spring edition of Flydresser.  More details here
Please note - the Rutland Youth Day, originally planned for July 2015 and mentioned in the Spring edition of Flydresser, will not now take place. Hopefully it will return in 2016.
...And talking of youth, have a look at three videos we have published on our News and Events page featuring Ben Beckwith tying three flies - Spent Olive Dun, CDC Sedge and GRHE
Fly Tying Competition 2015 Update
The results are in and will be published in the next issue of Fly Dresser. Winners and runners up will receive their certificates in the post in the next few days. Trophies for the winners will be dispatched direct from the engravers and you will receive more than one trophy if you won more than one category. The prizes from Veniards will be sent directly to you - you will receive one prize regardless of the number of categories you won.
A big thank you to Veniards for their generous sponsorship of the competition.



The Spring issue of Flydresser has been sent out to members.  Let us know if your copy has not yet arrived.  As always, do send your feedback, letters or other contributions to the Editorial Committee at
