Well folks, it’s that time of year again! The UK trout season is set to end within the next couple of weeks and, as us ‘hardcores’ gear up for the upcoming winter Grayling season, so start the UK’s fly tying shows in earnest.
First up (and as the title of this post gives a clue to), is the Fly Fest Fly Fishing Film Festival & Fly Fair, set to take the UK by storm once again this year on October 3rd/4th at the wonderful Rheged Centre, Penrith. A relative newcomer to the fly fair scene, Fly Fest hit the UK with tornado-force in 2014, setting up the 2015 show as a huge force to be reckoned with!
Boasting more than 50 (yes, 50!) fly tyers from across the globe, fly casting wizardry from eight magician-like casters, amazing films being aired at the venue’s huge IMAX cinema, and a host of both domestic and international retailers and manufacturers. This is one event NOT to be missed!
If you’re planning on dropping by the event, feel free to pop by, say Hi, and chat some fly fishing stories!
A few memories of last year’s great event…
