Fly Tying nights continue at Atherley
We have traditionally moved to Toronto Court in the summer, i.e. at the end of May. COVID continues to disrupt this, and we will need to await next summer to see if we can restart this tradition.
Toronto Court allowed us freedoms to try a things we are challenged to do at Atherley Bowling Club. So casting on the large grass field at the rear in Toronto Court isn't something that we can do easily at Atherley.
We're starting to explore ideas to break some of the regularity of tying every Tuesday. We have made tools in the past, dyed material, improved casting, understood how to put welded loops in fly lines, etc… Any thoughts in this direction would be welcome. Once we have some idea of what we all want, we will then need to look at balancing the books and dates.
Similarly, if you would like a specific fly pattern taught or demonstrated, please ask.
Our next day out will be at Duncton Mill Fishery on Sunday, 15 May 2022. An old favourite and a fun fishery to test your skills against, Duncton Mill sits in the heart of The South Downs National Park, just outside Petworth.
Plenty of parking is available. Duncton Mill also boasts picturesque surroundings, a beautiful mill pond with showpiece trout, and four lakes stocked with quality fighting rainbow.
Timings for the day: as usual, arrive to start fishing at 09:00. Lunch is for 12:30 and fish till you bag out.
