New Patterns and meeting old friends at the Irish Fly Fair

Nov. 2023

What a fantastic weekend tying at the Irish fly Fair tying on behalf of the Fulling Mill Team. First of all I would like to thank Steve and Elaine Munn for all their hard work in organising this event. It was just a brilliant weekend from start to finish and tying with over 70 fly tyers from around the world. Secondly I would like to thank everyone at Fulling Mill for putting their trust in me to be part of the team, it's a great honour.

I'd like to thank everyone that stopped by to say hello and watch me tying, and thank you as well to the 2 tyers that I sat beside on "Fly Tyers Row" for the two days; Fergal Collery and Anthony McCann, thanks boys the "craic" was just brilliant.

On Saturday I spent my day tying CDC Mayflies, Dabblers with micro dubbings, and Parachute Olives; all of which are a must to have in your box for Irish loughs. On Sunday my day was spent tying Dabblers and Sedge patterns from button sedges to Chocolate drops, these are a must to have in your box for later in the season. All of the flies that I tyed over the weekend are from materials from the new Fulling mill range, all of which can be purchased directly from Fulling Mill or your nearest Fulling Mill stockist.

Some success late in the season on the new patterns
