Bala, North Wales Game Fair.

 Last weekend, I was tying at the north Wales game fair at Bala. I have been tying at this show from the start, this year was the third year. and have to say it gets better ever year, and a great show to catch up with a number of mates. that don't get to see enough, myself and my mate Gareth Lewis above. (very well known for is super micro flies) drove up from south Wales very early Saturday morning, and the satnav did give us a great look around on the way up. why do these things always want to take you the long way around, but will say it was a great look at the country on the way up.
 Above, my good old mate Emyr Breese, again a great tier of competition flies. i was very lucky to be tying and sitting between him and Gareth Lewis, i picked up a lot of great tips. tying these small trout and grayling flies,
