Close season fly tying masterclass

Ronald Sutherland

I am planning fly tying lessons in the close season if there is enough interest.

They will consist of 2 - 3 days flytying and discussion on all aspects of "salmon" fly-tying and tactics . Solar Monkey, SuperSnaelda, SuperSquid, Coneheads, etc etc the list of our successful flies and inventions is very long.
The tying course will show you how to master all of them and many more.

If there is enough interest I will be able to approach hotels on Speyside and hopefully arrange a deal on accom for everyone.

There is no limit to the number courses but each one would be limited to 6 people, cost per person still to be worked out.

If you or a party of friends are interested please contact me and we can set a couple of days superb flytying and tactical talk...
