As 2014 dawns, we’re delighted to announce that the Wandle Piscators have recently formed the South London branch of the national Fly Dressers’ Guild.
All our fly tying evenings take place on the first Thursday of every month of the year, starting at 7.30pm in the William Morris at Merton Abbey Mills (apart from our January 2014 evening which will be held on Thursday 9 January to take account of New Year’s celebrations).
The evenings are co-ordinated by the Club’s very own professional fly-tyer, Jez Mallinson. Tyers of all levels are welcome to attend to learn and practice new techniques, exchange fly-tying tips and experiences, enjoy a convivial pint or two with like-minded fly-fishers, and even to demonstrate favourite patterns themselves.
If you attend these evenings on a regular basis, you may also wish to consider joining the Fly Dressers’ Guild as an individual member for just £20 a year. Benefits include insurance cover, entrance to many exciting competitions and the excellent quarterly magazine Flydresser – a fascinating journal crammed with interesting features and fly-tying advice.
By forming the South London branch of the Guild, we’re delighted to help fill a gap in the map which has existed for many years.
We look forward to seeing you at our Fly Dressers’ Guild fly tying evenings very soon!
