So I decided I needed some contact with other anglers and the best place for that was at the fly tying class along at Milngavie (rather than standing in the freezing cold chasing Grayling, some people might say actual fishing for a change) – an added bonus was that Jim from Palewatery was visiting to show a couple of Kelvinators how to tie his extended bodies.
Here he is the man himself giving instruction..he is a bloody patient guy to be honest (all this after travelling bloody miles on the train) – I found it difficult tying up foam body extended bodies never mind using glue and thread..
And it is not even the glue you get high on either.
All in all a great night – if being a new father did not force me to go to bed at around 8pm I would go every week.
By the way – if you are thinking of taking up fly tying and stay in the west of the city (or Wishaw and fancy travelling many miles) the night is on a Thursday in Milngavie library – check out this link for more info.
I can honestly say that if it was not for this club I would not be able to tie up the flies I do today – I mean sure they are pretty shit however they catch fish, after a fashion #grin#
