    I am an Australian fly casting champion of champions (3) times and cast in the 1973 and 1974 World championships.
    I am coming to England for a wedding in September and would like to do some casting and fly fishing if that is possible .
    Could you give me some dates in August/Sept where there might be an outdoor show or hunting day near London.
    I am a “wrinkly” now but still hunt and fly fish,.

    Hi Kevin, thank you for your comment, it’s lovely to hear from you. Currently the only BFCC activity planned for Sept is running casting competitions at the Welsh Game Fair in Bangor North Wales. There is often a country show that includes fishing in early Sept too, in Hampshire. We will have a BFCC meeting in Essex in Oct, probably the 1st (I’m still confirming this date). I currently don’t have anything planned for August, but that could change. I’ve added your email to our distribution so you can receive updates from us. I’ll also raise this on our FB page as others may know of any other such events. Kind regards, Tracy
