Welcome to our online home! The Fly Dressers’ Guild Wessex Branch meet almost every Tuesday evening to talk flies and practice tying them at our regular meetings. Whether you’re a novice or an expert at fly tying, we would love to have you join us as we share fly patterns that may be recent creations, recently learned, or simply interesting and quirky. Check out our schedule of activities which include guest speakers and fly fishing days out.
The ultimate test of any fly is—does it attract the attention of the fish? Thus we wet our lines once a month to test the flies we tie. If tying your first fly is a milestone event for you, with the joy and triumph that success brings you, imagine how it feels when you catch your first fish on a fly you had tied. We visit local fisheries, with the occasional trip to more distant ones; sometimes for friendly competitions...or for the fishing...but all to have a good time.
