Reflecting the extraordinary challenges we have all recently faced with the pandemic, the committee has taken the decision to reduce the cost of membership for the 2020/21 season to a token amount of just £1.

Membership of the Fly Dressers Guild is £20 per year. You must be a member of the main guild in order to be a member of the Hertfordshire Branch.

Main Guild & Branch memberships runs from the 1st September to 31st August each year.

Anyone joining after the 1st March will get a 50% discount on Guild membership fees.

The Herts FDG committee are happy to allow any potential members to attend a demonstration or tying evening as a guest before joining.

If you pay by direct debit or sign up on our open evening in September you will get a £3 discount on the main Guild membership, taking the total cost to £18.

Our monthly speaker meetings cost £4 on the door, and for our tying evenings it is £3.


If you would like to join or renew your membership please download and complete a form.
