It was the FDG team comp, and four of us from the fly fishing forum got a team together – Me, Richard, Wynne and Dave.
All from different parts of the country and all FDG members of course.
The idea was brought up by Richard and the team name ‘The Forumites’ was my idea, (not very inventive).
We had to tie three flies each mine was the Coachman, and send them as a team effort to FDG HQ (details in Autumn fly dresser mag).
This we did, but it was a close thing to get them there in time as Dave’s dad was taken ill and shortly after sadly died, but he came up with the flies just in time.
We all received a trophy and certificate, and also a goody bag from Veniards with lots of good useful items.
Details of the comp will be in the next mag, but here are the pics of the trophy and cert.
