EDIT

Only two weeks to go to the biggest Fly and lure show in the UK.

So we have decided to put on a large fly fishing and lure fishing show in Bristol next year.
We already have lots of stands booked and are working on the website and will keep people up to date on how things are progressing.
What i would like to know is what people would like to see at the show.
We have some cool ideas already but we would like to make this the best fly fishing and lure fishing show in the UK.
Please please chip in with suggestions and ideas and lets make this a great show.

DATE 28th & 29th Oct 2017
Venue Bristol ( 2 mintues from the M4/M32 junction)

If any retailers, Brands or potential companies want stand please contact me on here or email me toby@funky-products.com

Sounds fantastic and I would love to go as Bristol is where I'm from.
However, and I know this wont help but I'm gonna be selfish and say it anyway cos I would love to be there, I cant get a flight from Marseille to Bristol in October, they only fly there in the Summer, dammit !
So if you want me to be there, cos I wanna be there, can you kindly reschedule to accommodate my ( not so ) cheap as chips flight from Marseille.
Thanks for taking this into consideration and I hope you will see me at the Bristol fly fishing show in 2017 with a suntan that you only get from being a bloody expat in the sun !
Seriously, a great Idea and if I can I would love to be there, good luck with it fella's.

Float tubing please.

A 'have a go' type thing (if there is water available) to give people a chance at trying finning around in a tube.

cheers

Great idea Tobby.

A good idea is to do like in Munich fly show, to allow people to make presentations about fly fishing.

I have seen a lot of interesting presentations about many different topics from biology to nymphing techniques.

You just have to plan rooms with video projector.

If you do so, I'll be the first on the list to make a presentation about the ceramic flies :)

Cheers.

Since I’m just starting out again I reckon this could be a good day out and try and pick up bits and bobs and see what tips I can pick up. Also helps it’s just down the road for me

Do your trip on Sunday and I'll pick you up from Swindon station. Cheaper train fare. Can't do Saturdays this time of year as working gundogs need to be out and about.

Cost you a lunchtime pint.
