The Flydressers Guild exists to promote an interest in fly tying and bring together fly-tyers worldwide.
Anyone can join. New members are
most welcome - this especially includes those new to fly dressing.
Local Branch Membership
Typically a Branch will hold regular flytying classes for all standards, organise talks and demonstrations on all aspects of flytying and flyfishing, and run regular flyfishing outings.
More importantly local Branches offer their members friendship among like minded individuals and provide a happy, congenial, expert environment in which to learn and enjoy flytying and flyfishing.
Each Branch of The Flydressers’ Guild is different, as the Branch membership decides on the activities that their Branch will offer.
