The Guild Awards Scheme is an opportunity for members to test their fly-tying abilities against a national standard at their own pace and ultimately receive a recognised award. The scheme is meant to be informative, enjoyable and to encourage co-operation and camaraderie amongst those taking part.

Participation is entirely voluntary. No member is under any obligation to take part.

In essence participants are required to tie three examples of each fly, which are then assessed on quality as individuals and a group of three. These flies are picked to demonstrate particular skills and a consistency of technique.

At our Branch the Bronze & Silver awards can be assessed by our President and Award co-ordinator Ian Ruff.

More details and advice can be found on the F.D.G. website
