We will get a web site for our fly dressers club, meanwhile I plan to use this page of Game Angling Scotland to keep our regular members and other interested parties informed.
This is probably the 5th year that we have been running and we meet on Thursday evenings from October to early April with a short break for Christmas. The venue is Milngavie Library, Allander Way, Milngavie, G62 8PN from 6.30pm each Thursday.
We do not charge a membership fee but simply ask that you pay at present £3 per week towards the hire of the facility and free soft drinks. Any surplus is accumulated and used to pay for our guest speakers.

The Milngavie Fly Dressers decided on the 16th January 2014 that they would become a branch of the Fly Dressers Guild. This is great news for Glasgow as the original Glasgow Branch ceased in approximately 2002. The attraction was the ability to participate in the Guild’s Bronze, Silver and Gold awards scheme. Everything else at our meetings remain the same.
Membership of the Guild providing the subscription is paid via the branch before the end of October is £17 for the year. If you join later the subscription becomes £20. In return you get a number of benefits details of which you can find at the link above. The main ones are a quarterly magazine and discounts from select supplier so your £20 is easily recouped. We will still be charging £3 for attendance at one of our meetings. Contact details for our branch can be found on the FDG link above.

I have been a bit quiet on my blogg recently about most things for a number of reasons. I feel that I should update information about the Milngavie Branch of the Fly Dressers Guild. We are still meeting on a Thursday evening at Milngavie Library and regularly have a dozen tiers attend weekly. We now have a group of tiers who completed the FDG Bronze award and are now working towards their Silver award. In addition we have a couple of complete beginners who are supported by existing members. The Autumn session ends on the 3rd December and we commence again in January. I will endeavor to publish our program for the spring once completed.
