British Fly Fair International 2017

British Fly Fair International Weekend

It’s that time of year again and this weekend I will be tying at The British Fly Fair International http://www.bffi.co.uk/ This year the show will be bigger and better than ever and cover three huge halls, all filled with fly tying and fishing related goodies, not to mention loads of international fly tyers. I will be tying Salt water patterns for Bass and sea trout. I will also be doing a demo in the fly tyers theatre on both Saturday & Sunday . If you have a free day and are in the area it’s a great show, so please call in and say hello. You can check out the program and exhibitors on the link above.

Cookshill Killer

This is a streamer I recently designed for Steve Cooper who runs BFFI (British Fly Fair International ) and is owner of Cookshill fly tying materials. Steve asked me to make a pattern for the BFFI 2017 show. With the show being located in Staffordshire, famous for it bone china and porcelain production, Steve has a commemorative coffee mug made each year, the 2017 mug will be adorned with a photo of ‘Cookshill’s Killer. If you don’t know Steve’s web shop please take a look, some of the best natural materials around, most of which Steve prepares himself… If you haven’t already visited BFFI its well worth a visit, loads of great local and international tyers and tons of fly tying related stands.
