Fly tying with Gordon van der Spuy
What a most inspiring, fun and enjoyable whole day session of teaching and fly tying was held on 12 Oct 13 at the clubs venue
Those who attended really appreciated Gordons (and 'Uncle Phil's) involvement in our activities and feedback received from members was very satisfying and highly complimentary. The group had beginners and intermediate tiers and Gordon ensured group and one-on-one teaching which was superb, a real Maestro!
The group tied wet and dry flies...nymphs, mayflies and more (check the photo below), and of course created new flies...with no name.
What each person took away from this session was undoubtably techniques, rules, type of threads, different materials and hooks to be used...for some just pure reinforcement of the good old basics and more. For those who did not attend pity you missed out ...maybe next time.
We need to get together more often on an informal basis and tie flies. Aspiring tiers are invited to join upcoming sessions.
Till next time happy tying!
