Fly Tying Social (UPDATE)

wlaa Tue, 08/30/2016 - 11:07

We are planning to expand the Fly Tying Social and investing more time in preparing for next season. To this end we will be investing in materials and tools for members who would like to get into fly tying without the initial outlay. The association will provide all materials, hooks and tools for attendees, the focus of the FTS going forward will be tying patterns essential for fishing on the Almond with a view to introducing members to fly tying. Members will have the opportunity to learn to tie Nymphs, Dry Flies, Wets and Lures and prepare a fly box for the 2017 season.

The flies we plan to cover should see you through every situation on the river. The main hatches on the river are Upwings, Caddis, Midge & Stone Flies. Almond trout are also known to feed on the smaller fish including Minnows, Bullheads and Stone Loach so we will cover Lures. Members attending will be tying Parachute, F-fly, Klinkhamer, Pheasant Tail, Hare's Ear, North Country Spider & Woolly Bugger.

This Change to the FTS will start on 5th September and will continue into next year, all members are welcome to attend.
