Speaker Evening Thursday 19th March CANCELLED

BFFI Weekend

Five intrepid members of the Club braved the storm and went to Stafford last weekend. The Saturday was a very busy day and with the large crowds we did not manage to find each other until after lunch. We found that we had all spent far too much! But were eager to come back on Sunday for more. Martin had to leave at the end of Saturday but John Goldie, John Poote, Keith Allison and Geoff went off to the Spitfire North Hotel and gathered in John Goldie’s room to watch the Rugby where red wine, beer and cider were the order of the day. Mr Goldie provided a selection of nuts and crisps and a good time was had by all. A meal followed at the Brewers Fayre. Next morning after a hearty breakfast, back to the shown for a final look round and a few odd bits for Keith and Geoff who departed about 11:30 leaving the two Johns to uphold the CFT&FFC tradition of buying two of everything even if we already have it at home!

Club Information

We are a long established club which in a friendly and informal group have been meeting to tie flies and talk about our fishing exploits. After 30 years we have decided to change our club name from the Chiltern Branch of the Fly Dressers’ Guild to the Chiltern Fly Tying and Fly Fishing Club which we think reflects a more modern outlook and terminology.

We have a number of excellent fly tyers who demonstrate at shows and events; they also train newcomers in all the techniques necessary to tie successful flies. Members are encouraged to improve their techniques and assistance is always available to help achieve a better understanding of fly tying.

Throughout the season we organise informal fishing days, we have experienced members who are willing to instruct newcomers in the various skills needed to catch fish.
