Fly Tying Fun At The Gwent Angling Society Demo Day

Another outstanding Gwent Angling Society event with a load of great tiers at Ponthir Village Hall took place on Sunday 6th March. A huge thanks to all who attended to support GAS, all monies of which will be funding this summer’s Annual Junior Academy, a weekend-long event which helps to introduce juniors to the wonderful world of fly fishing.

A huge personal thanks to all who popped by my table for a chin-wag and for discussions revolving midges and small stream flies. You kept me busy (and my back is still a little sore!), but I loved every minute of it.

See you all soon!
