Put the date in your diary for next year for a chance to spend the day at the Uttoxeter Fly Fair, Staffordshire in the Midlands (formerly Burton on Trent Game Fishing and Fly Tying Festival).

Now in its 7th successful year the show goes from strength to strength attracting major names in game fishing manufacturing and tackle trade, where the advice is free and prices are the most competetive in the UK. The price for admission for adults has been kept the same at just £5.00 with FREE PARKING on site and facilities for disabled. The show takes place in three heated exhibition halls and a first floor theatre space. Weather permitting we offer casting tuition and demonstrations throughout the day in an area just outside of the main race stand.

FLY TYING DEMONSTRATIONS

The 2017 show will be our biggest so far, attracting even more well known fly tyers demonstrating their skills and latest seasons patterns. The fly tying hall houses over 40 fly tying stations where visitors can watch, ask advice and have a go at tying with fishermen like yourselves who are pleased to chat and show off their skills, patterns and latest materials. Take a seat or stand and watch - you will learn new techniques and skills plus advice on how to fish the flies you see - well worth much more than the small admission price for the complete show. The Fly Dressers Guild will run a fly tying clinic.

MAJOR TACKLE MANUFACTURERS AND RETAIL TACKLE AND MATERIAL SUPPLIERS

The trades stands hall has over 40 selling areas and display stands. There are more professional tyers on the manufacturers stands such as Partridge and Fulling Mill.
Major tackle suppliers including Fly Tying Boutique, Funky Fly, Eyebrook Tackle, Hemmingways Fly Fishing Products and Orvis to name just a few, are all available to show their full range of products and give you a chance to compare prices and quality. Thousands of products for you to see up close and ask questions from the best people in the trade. There are many other interesting displays including Barry Grantham, a regular show visitor who is well known for his excellent rod making skills, rod repairs and range of restored rods and reels.

Other regular exhibitors include Derbyshire Fishing Flies offering hand tied flies and used tackle bargains. Looking for a special present then view the beautiful framed salmon and trout flies on the Jeff Mason's stand, or check out the jewellery stall run by Serena in the main hall.

PRESENTATION THEATRE AND GUEST SPEAKERS

The list of guest speakers grows every year and you will not be disappointed in 2017. We have a theatre space on the first floor where there will be live shows from top game anglers, fishing authors and magazine contributors. These will take place throughout the day and a full list and times will be posted around the halls on the day. Very entertaining and informative - some tips are priceless.
