2014 Autumn Meeting

Many thanks (again) to Charles Jardine & Lee Cooper for sparing their time to divulge their secret fly tying tips to everyone. Also huge thanks to Toby & Rachel Merigan (Funky Fly Tying) for coming along to show off their wonderful fly tying equipment & materials etc. And it proved that we fishermen are easier to catch than a trout!!

As always a special thanks to John Aplin for planning the night and all those who helped to set up & clear away – especially Elliott & Clive 🙂

Here are a few photographs from last night…. The next meeting won’t be too far away, so make sure you keep a keen an eye on the website for future dates…
