Following the successful evening 2 years ago, another member’s evening with Peter has been arranged for the above date. The evening will include Peter demonstrating the Tenkara techniques, with commentary and he will be available to answer any questions, etc that members may have.( Last time he brought some rods and accessories which members were able to purchase.)
It is anticipated that we shall arrange a small BBQ on the evening, the group will be limited to a maximum of 12 with a provisional cost of £25.00/head. Further details will be posted nearer the date but this is another date for your diaries. Should anyone be interested now, please let me know. Stephen Clarke. 07754 621012 or asclarke647gmail.com
On this evening we have arranged a presentation, supported by video footage, from Mr Don Stazicker.
The title of the presentation is Riseforms – Can we tell what they are eating?
It looks at how trout rise, what triggers the rise and what can we tell from the riseform.
Ultra high definition video is used to investigate what takes place in a split second often out of sight beneath the surface of the river.
It might change how you think of dry flies forever.
Cost will be £6.00 per person, with a light buffet at the end. Don comes very highly recommended and usually has a ‘packed house’.
I will be sending out reminders nearer the date but should anyone wish to book a seat now, let me know.
Stephen Clarke. Secretary. 07754 621012 or firstname.lastname@example.org
