Tuesday Fly Tying nights 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 provided a different atmosphere and different opportunities to try things we were challenged to do at Atherley Bowling Club.

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 Fishing Sundays for 2023

Once a month we meet at a local fishery to wet a line and test the flies that we’ve tied against the trout.

During the day we have a very light-hearted competition for the biggest fish and the heaviest brace. Each month, a trophy is awarded for that month’s competition.

We generally meet to start fishing at 09:00, with lunch at about 12:30. People usually fish until they have bagged out. Tea and coffee are sometimes available at the fishery.

Our members will gladly share patterns that they’re catching with and how they’re fishing them, so come along and test your fly patterns with us.
