Programme

We are having our Registration Night at 7:30pm on Wednesday 2nd October 2019 at West Park Rugby Club, The Sycamores, Bramhope, LS16 9JR.

We have put two programmes together for the members this year: The beginners programme and the improvers programme, and both are very comprehensive.

We also have six very experienced celebrity fly tyers coming along to give a talk and inspire us all on the first Wednesday of each month. This year we have Paul Procter, Dave Hudson, Aimeé Kitching, Stuart Croft, Dave Southall and last but by no means least, Matt Eastham.

This year the beginners group will all be loaned a vice, tools and all the materials needed to tie the flies in the programme. This will give all the beginners the chance to initially sample fly tying without it actually costing them anything.

If you would like to join us on Wednesday 2nd October, you would be made very welcome.
