Our next meeting is on Wednesday next week – 8th February, At The Rutland Hotel, Bakewell as usual – 7.30pm start.
This time we have Richard Ward who many of you will know. He has extensive knowledge of the local rivers and fly life. Richard is a keen exponent of Dry Fly fishing for trout, and will be tying and discussing some of his flies for us (including nymphs). He has very generously offered the flies to us to be raffled on the night, and tickets will be available at £1 each.
Peter Arfield has asked me to pass on details of his fly tying classes, held at Hope Valley College, which he informs me are ‘nothing fancy’ and an opportunity to get together with like minded folk. Meetings are on Monday evenings.
Our following – and last meeting will be a dinner, at The Rutland on 14th March, friends, partners welcome. The cost will be £18.50 for a 3 course meal. Could you please let me know if you would like to attend, and numbers, menu to follow. I need to confirm numbers and choices by 6th march. We propose to have a ‘Bring and Buy’ stall, so here’s your opportunity to make room for something new perhaps!
I expect I may see some of you on Sunday (snow permitting!!)
