Another fantastic junior coaching session

Would like to say a massive thank you to Howard Kelly for what was a superb evening… The Juniors (and may I add the seniors) learnt a lot on elastication and shot patterns we are all looking forward to seeing you back down on the coaching evenings very soon.

Thanks once again
From myself and all at RAA

Fly Tying Coaching Session

What a good evening fly tying. Tony and Gwyneth were excellent, again, and the youngsters picked up more knowledge and skills. Our Secretary got as much pleasure as the youngsters just need to get him on the water now.

Next up, on Thursday 28th February, we have got Howard Kelly (Matrix) who is going to show you how elastication of poles works and also float shotting. WE HAVE LIMITED PLACES so you must contact Lee on 07931 570581 to secure your place (this will work on a first come first serve basis).
