I was up in Satfford recently at the British Fly Fair International. It is the first time that I have attended the Fair at Stafforshire County Showground and it really is a perfect venue for an ever growing event. It is easy to find and plenty of space for parking. I expect it is also quite a picturesque place, but the weather was not conducive to distant views (snow had threatened earlier).
I met old friends and made some new ones. It is good to see that well-established suppliers are still trading, as well as newer ones coming onto the market.
I had a shopping list and managed to get most of what I wanted, but mail order will have to suffice for those items not found. The benefit of a live event, is being able to check the product before purchase, something not easily done via mail order.
Looking forward to i-fish in the Autumn, closer to home!
