the formation of the club 1985 we have
offered two fly tying classes. The first was
designed for novices, the second for those
with more experience. The beginners' program started with an introduction to
tools and materials, and then progressed from simple flies involving only a few materials, to a gradual intoduction of different materials and methods so that most
common methods and patterns are covered. The flies are shown in the tying table 1 page. The second
programme involved a series of more complex
flies, changing each year, aiming to introduce
patterns and methods.
Some samples are displayed in the
tying table 2
page. Both progammes relied on
demonstration and advice from experienced
members, most of whom are still active
Unfortunately - due to a decline in member
numbers - this year (2019) we were forced to
take the decision to abandon these "formal"
A hard core of members still meet each week
and tie their own patterns.
