Earlier this spring, the inaugural 2017 London Fly Fishing Fair was staged over two days in the impressive main hall of London's Business Design Centre. As their UK representative, I was on hand to fly the flag for Bonefish & Tarpon Trust. Hosted by Orvis UK in their booth, I had plenty of interest in the work of the Trust, handing out a full box of BTT journals, membership leaflets and merchandise to UK fly anglers who stopped to talk, many of whom travel internationally to flats locations around the world. The international support for this new kind of consumer fishing show in the UK (New York’s Urban Angler, the Bahamas and several destination companies offering flats fishing trips were represented) was very well received by the public. The Fair is set to grow even larger next year with plans already underway for 2018. If you would like more information, please CONTACT ME.
