This years British Fly Fair International was, despite snowy conditions on Saturday, probably one of the best shows we’ve attended. Saturday in particular was very busy with many members stopping off at the Ladffa stand to say hello. Several enquiries for membership and a couple of sign ups make the show worth while. The raffle again expertly run by Chris, a Ladffa friend, made sure that the weekend was a good one for all the visitors to the stand. The main prize of a days fishing for two was won by Hywel Hughes who is taking his day in early June, tight lines are hopefully the order of the day.

New this year was Simon Everett who for a fiver made those once discarded fly tying scissors a joy to use after his expertise in sharpening and re alignment was complete. If Any tiers amongst our membership need his skills give him a ring him on 07768 632560 to get a quote.

We now look to the Bakewell show in summer and the October fly fair at the Uttoxeter Race course.
