BUG-BOND attends the BFFI: Dougie's a star attraction!

The British Fly Fair International (BFFI for short) is at the Staffordshire County Showground again on 22nd & 23rd June, a matter of a week or so away. It is a great weekend and whether you go for the day or the weekend you will undoubtedly enjoy it!

The BUG-BOND Team will be there in force as usual with many additional tyers choosing to use BUG-BOND as their UV resin of choice as well.

You'll see:

Andy Elliot
Ilan Evans
Skuli Kristinsson
Dougie Loughridge
Chris Reeves
Chris Reed
Chris Sandford
Riny Sluiter
Jo Stephenson
Paul van den Dreische

Dougie Loughridge

If you are going you need to make time in your schedule for at least one of the Fly Tying Presentations… under the heading "Fly Tying in Focus" ace Scottish tyer and all round great guy Dougie Loughridge will be demonstrating tying one of his famous pike flies in the theatre from 1200 to 1300hrs each day. I have it on good authority that the Dougie who sits on both the BUG-BOND and Partridge Hooks teams will tie his version of Blanton’s Flashtail Whistler… this fly has become legendary in pike fly fishing circles and is one of my firm favourites.

Dougie's Whistlers

A show not to miss; and definitely a presentation not to miss.

Supporting the show will be Veniard Ltd who distribute BUG-BOND… please do go and say “Hi!” to Phil Varney as well – he’ll appreciate it!
