 On the 23/24th of June, the BFFI fly fair which is the best show far of the year. for anything to do with fly tying, and fly fishing plus good cast pool and instructors in them all. to help you out, i have been tying at this show now for four years. and have to say it gets better every year, i did take a few photos of some trade stands. luckily went around before the show opened, as it would have been hard work taking the photos when the visitors came in. above is the Cookshill stand, who not only run the show but sell the best materials you could ever want.
