Fly tying is where one creates an artificial imitation of the fishes food source.
Basically the skill is made up of two topics. The craft or art of putting fur and feather to a hook and Entomology, the study of insects.
You do not need to tie flies to be a fly fisher as flies are readily available on the open market. But, there are some very distinct advantages in tying your own , one great advantage is that you get the satisfaction of the fish capture from bare hook to the dinner plate, from start to finish.
B.R.R.F.A hold fly tying evenings during the close season where we share pattern information and tying techniques.
These are friendly events and are held in the skittle alley at the Stoke Inn pub on alternate Monday evenings starting at 7.30pm.
Non-members and non-drinkers are more than welcome.
