Well.. Not long til itś time to start packing for the best event of the year, British Fly Fair in Stoke England. I have been tying at this event several times before, it was actually my first tyersrow. This year I managed to get my fiance to come with me aswell, exciting to see if she appreciates the people and atmosphere as much as I do.

I have wanted to make some nice display frames to bring to events, to show a selection of Catskill flies in a nice way. When working with dry flies it isnt that easy though, there are not that many frames suitable to hold a dry fly. Atleast I have had problems getting frames with a decent look. So this year  I took the time to buy some frames that I liked, and then I rebuilt it to fit my fry flies. And I have spent a week or so to tie the flies on old size 12 Allcock handmade hooks, the real deal.

And I must say... I am quite satisfied with the result..
