Fishing club to offer fly tying tuition
Denbigh & Clwyd Angling Club is holding a series of fly tying tuition sessions open to members and non-members. The classes are being held at the fire station offices in Denbigh starting at 7.30pm on Wednesday 3 December and will continue every first Wednesday of the month, initially until April.
Holding the classes has been made possible thanks to Natural Resources Wales’ Sustainable Fisheries initiative that has enabled the club to buy a number of fly tying kits and books offering fly-tying instruction for beginners and hints and tips for experienced fly-tyers. The scheme has also made it possible for the club to buy six sets of fly fishing tackle that it will make available on loan to members who would like to try fly fishing before they invest in their own equipment.
Tuition will be provided by club chairman, Dyfed Wyn Jones and vice chair, Craig Evans; two well known local anglers, both with many years fly tying and fly fishing experience. Classes are free to club members with a charge of £5 per session for non-members. The sessions are open to juniors but anybody under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Places are limited and anybody interested in attending are being urged to contact club secretary, Allan Cuthbert on 07527 402291 to book a place.
Commenting about the classes, vice chair, Craig Evans, said: “The sessions aren’t going to be formal classroom type events. They will be fly tying sessions in a social atmosphere with plenty of help for beginners and advice when wanted by those with some fly tying experience or wanting to learn new techniques. People attending are also being encouraged to bring their own equipment with them.
