On Tuesday night the club welcomed Tim Wood to give talk and demonstration to club members.Tim recently tied at the Irish Fly Fair so his evening with us was eagerly anticipated. The flies he covered ranged from small dries to shrimp patterns all of which he uses himself with great effect. Many of the flies would normally be tied on size 20 hooks and smaller but for demonstration purposes he used larger sizes much to the relief of those of us with failing eye sight.
During the evening also talked about his recent fishing trip to Bosnia where he was accompanied by former club member Glyn Williams. Glyn has recently moved to North Wales however he will be coming back in the new year to give us a fly tying demonstration and talk. Tim gave us an insight into the fishing in Bosnia which left members extremely envious given the quality and number of fish caught. The evening was enjoyed by all who attended and by Tim himself and we look forward to inviting Tim back in the future
