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 venue had to be changed for this Sunday, and we will now be fishing at John O Gaunt in King Sombourne.
Fishing will be hard with the temperatures expected to be in the low 30’s after lunch but John O Gaunt has lots of deep-water pockets and is a large body of water – fish deep, fish slow, and we should (hopefully) find a fish or two.
Usual arrangements: arrive ready to fish around 09:00, lunch at 12:30, and then on this occasion, probably head home as projected temperatures creep up to low 30’s in the afternoon according to the weatherman.
Look forward to seeing you all, till then enjoy the summer.
