Last Demo for this season 21/03/2017

Our last demo for the 2017 winter season is Paul Procter  giving a talk on "Trout Tactics". Paul has recently returned from his latest adventure, so it should be a cracking evening.

Workshop day with Stuart Croft

We had a fabulous day with Stuart Croft last Saturday, with a full explanation and tying demonstration of his most used flies.

Study in concentration.

Matt Eastham, Tuesday 15th March 2016

Matt Eastham is a well respected angling writer Including his fantastic blog 'North Country Angler'. northcountryangler@blogspot.com. Matt tied a range of his favorites for both rivers and still water. These flies included several olive type patterns ideal for this time of year as the hatches of LDOs and other upwing species start to pick up pace on our local rivers.
