I am back after 2 weeks away. So sorry about the late notice but we have a fly tying evening this Wednesday evening (9th July). I hope you will be able to join us. For more details on how it works see my old post about the fly tying evening. I have some new material that I want to try.
This week wednesday we will be having our 3rd fly tying evening. For details on what it is about check out the details here. I will be away after this for 2 weeks but will pick up when I am back in JHB. If you don’t want to miss out on when the next event will be then please subscribe to this blog.
This week I am keen to focus on poppers, it is not a hard and fast rule so you can tie what you want. My daughter is into playing with modeling clay and she does amazing stuff, I think she is going to be a sculpture one day. So we will be experimenting with some frog patterns and seeing how we can add a hook to it.
Please feel free to join us. Just contact me if you want to pull in. 0836819281
Just a reminder that on Wednesday we will be having our second fly tying evening gathering. The details are here fly tying evening.
On wednesday I am hoping to tie some big flies for my trip to St Lucia Lake at the end of June. I want to catch some big Cob.
Our first evening was a lot of fun and we managed to tie a few flies. We also have a beginner that tied a awesome fly and I hope in summer we get to test it.
I am having my first fly tying evening on Wednesday 4th June from 6pm to 8pm. Looking at doing it once a week. It will just be an informal gathering to tie flies and have fun, please bring your own equipment and materials. I have the venue in Midrand. Pop me a mail if you keen to join us. firstname.lastname@example.org or whatsapp on my cell 0836819281 or comment on this post. I will send you the address, and how to access the gate.
It would be free of charge maybe we could just share some snacks.
Looking forward to meeting some awesome people and learn to tie some cool flies. My kids will be joining me so you are welcome to bring your own.
Just let me know if I have forgotten anything
Over the weekend I made myself a Mobile Fly tying desk. I can now tie flies no matter where I am. There is just 2 things still to do on it. Stain it and attach some foam on it so I can put rest some hooks on it. I must say I am rather chuffed with it and look forward to tying many flies. It was make with some wood lying round and an awesome workshop fulled with all the right tools. Thanks to my father-in-law.
