The Programme

Attached is a further updated programme for the Fly Tying Season Sept 2019 – May 2020.  I have corrected the FDG 2019 AGM Date and the location of The Game Fair 2020. I will update and reissue it as required.  This week’s tying programme is:

Bronze: Hackled Palmered Wets

Silver: Dries - Winged

Gold: Woven Nymph

Grayling:  Scuds / Shrimps

Stillwater: Boobys

Or just come along and tie your own flies for fishing, or come and have a natter and a pint – all are welcome!

 

10 minute Demo

Any volunteers for a demo this Thursday?


Please can you all volunteer to give one 10 Minute Demo each during this next season?  All welcome!


As discussed briefly last week - has anyone any suggestions re making the Demos more visible – using a camera attached to the TV or similar?


Materials & Tools for New Starters

If you have any small quantities of common fly tying materials, or redundant tools, – please bring them along so we can make up an instant starter kit for new comers.
