Guest Speaker: Steve Cooper – confessions of a fly tying materials salesman

Steve Cooper

4th December 2014

Steve Cooper, of Cookshill Fly Tying, has an extensive knowledge of a variety of materials for the fly dresser and specialises in providing a range of mainly natural materials of the highest quality and at a price that is sensible. Steve also organises the highly successful British Fly Fair, held in Stafford in February (7th and 8th, February, 2015).

Steve visited Congleton Fly Tying Club on December 4th, 2014 where he gave an entertaining  talk entitled “confessions of a fly tying materials salesman”.  This covered various aspects of how he acquired his materials and stories of interesting interactions with his customers. This was followed by a demonstration of skinning and preparing skins for sale (eg Grey partridge) using a Jay as demonstration material.
