At the recent London fly fishing show The Fly Dressers Guild were approached by the organisers of the fishing village element of the 2018 Game Fair which will be held at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire.
The Game fair is 60 years old this year and the organisers would like our members to design and tie a fly that captures the essence of the show. Suggested themes include the Game Fair colours, materials that can be obtained from the gamekeeper, flies that would grace a country h
This is the second time I have seen Phil demonstrate at the Branch and both time I have found him entertaining and very instructive. I definitely will be tying some of those flies ready for my river season (once it stops raining!!). There were some excellent tips and I especially liked the one for tying on two hackles, as in an Adams, sheer genius. .
Looks to be a bargain at £19.99, thanks to David Barbanel for highlighting this, https://www.aldi.co.uk/magnifying-table-light/p/075338110589400 https://www.aldi.co.uk/magnifying-table-light/p/075338110589400
