Prizes boost fly tying for youngsters

Fly tying instruction for young people will benefit from £105 raised in a raffle drawn today (Friday, April 27) at the Little Isle Hut. The prizes were two sets of specially tied IAC Centenary flies mounted on stag horn, plus boxes of salmon flies tied and donated by club president Graham MacKenzie. The winners were Neil Fraser and Kenny Mackenzie, neither of whom were able to be present for the draw which was graciously carried out by club member Geraldine Connah. 

The funds raised will assist instruction and the provision of materials for young novice fly tyers at the club’s classes, which will run in the conference suite of Dow’s Diner on Balloan Road each Wednesday evening from October 31 to February 27. Junior and senior tyers, experienced or inexperienced, or anyone new to angling, will be welcome at the classes. Salmon and trout fly tying will be tutored by experienced tyers. All interested are invited to register with class organiser Alan Scott at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
