We hold our regular monthly meetings (September through to May) at St. Lawrence Church Hall in Brown’s Lane, Effingham, KT24 5NL. The venue remains the same until further notice (at least until December 2019).
The Surrey Flydressers’ Guild is the Surrey Branch of The Fly Dressers’ Guild – an organisation which aims to promote fly-tying for all. There are no entry qualifications – you do not have to be an expert fly-tier. An interest in flies, fly-tying or fly-fishing is all that is required.
We have meetings once a month between September and the following May. Well known fly-dressers and game-fishers are invited to give talks, instruction and help with a variety of fly-tying and fishing topics. The meetings represent an ideal opportunity to get together with like-minded people and share and learn from each other’s experiences.
We also hold separate fly tying classes at Byfleet Village Hall on several evenings a month. Fly tiers of all abilities are welcome.
Please Note: We have an extra meeting in November (Monday 4th) at Byfleet Village Hall, where we have invited Barry Ord Clarke to give us a demonstration of his unique style of fly tying. This is certain to be a popular event. Please see the Monthly meetings page for further details.
Lastly, we also organise occasional fishing outings throughout the year, along with the occasional friendly fishing competition with other Guild branches or members.
If you are interested in flies, fly-tying or fly-fishing – or are not sure if you might be – do come to one of our talks or tying evenings and see whether you’d like to join the Surrey Flydresser’s Guild. Just introduce yourself when you arrive – the first meeting is totally free and without obligation. Do not worry if you have no tools or materials, both can be provided at the fly tying lessons.
