The Worcester Fly Dressers is a group of people passionate about fly tying and fly angling. In the past year or so the group has been turning its attention to building the next generation as passionate as they are about their pastime.
Following a number of the group completing the Dreamstore Academy Level 2 Coaching Certificate in 2014, the winter months were spent planning for youth development in the year ahead. Dreamstore UK also provided Small Grant funding and sourced fly training rods – ideal for even the smallest person to have a go at casting.
The first outing bringing all this activity together was at the Countrytastic event at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, on the weekend of 9th April just after Easter. This is a hugely popular show, with families attending from all over the West Midlands. The addition of Dreamstore EAZ mats to the Fly Dressers own props, created a massive interest from young people of all ages and ability in a safe family friendly casting zone.
Of course, the fly dressing was also a great success.
Dreamstore is pleased to have been able to support the Worcester Fly Dressers starting on its path to building the next generation of anglers, and wish the team every success in the future.
