Support for Shows

If you are organising a demonstration at a show, exhibition, or similar event, please do get in touch with the General Secretary to see how the main Guild could support you.

Please note: it is not the Guild’s intention to “muscle in” on branches local shows or dictate what you can or should do, but we would be very happy to:

  • send Branches leaflets on the Guild, membership forms, standing order forms and back issues of Flydresser magazine;
  • provide contact details of members who have indicated they are willing to help out at shows (see below).

If you intend to take advantage of the Guild’s civil liability insurance, please see the information on our Insurance page and make sure you comply with the necessary requirements.

You might want to also read the articles submitted by members of the North Kent and Worcester branches on organising shows: Organising Fly Tying Shows and Waving the Flag, both of which have some very helpful and complementary suggestions.

Finally, if you are providing support at a show or are thinking of doing so, you might want to have a look at this Guide to Tying Flies at Shows and Fairs, which has some very helpful suggestions.
