International Fly Tying Symposium 2023

During the weekend 11-12 November 2023 I will be attending the worlds largest fly tying show, The International Fly Tying Symposium.

It will be a busy weekend, I will be doing classes, demos, tying and signing my last two books all day Saturday and Sunday, along with a great lineup of international fly tyers.  So put the date in your calendar and I look forward to seeing you there.

On Saturday at 11:30-12:30. 11 November I will be doing a Featured tyers spot ‘Parachute Perfect’ Here Barry will be demonstrating many very different parachute hackling techniques for the perfect parachute hackle.

On Saturday at 15:00-15:45. 11 November I will be doing a seminar ‘All from wool and a feather duster’  A fly tyers journey. Barry has been a professional fly fishing photographer and fly tyer for over 35 years.  This chosen profession has taken him to over 40 different countries and 5 continents, resulting in 16 fly tying and fly fishing books and contributions to over 40 more. Barry invites you to join him on a stunningly visual snapshot tour of this journey.

On Sunday at 08:30-11:00. 12 November I will be doing a Tying Class, ‘Master Class Techniques’. Here Barry will teach over a dozen masterclass techniques in only two patterns, a mayfly nymph and a mayfly dun. Once mastered, these techniques will substantially improve your overall fly tying. Barry will provide all hooks and materials required for the class. 

Don’t miss this oppertunity, There are only 10 places available for this class. You can book the ‘Master Class Techniques’ here:
