Looking forward to meeting some of you forum members at this new club.

Should be well worth attending for the guest nights. Dave Downie who needs no introduction, Davy McPhail who is one of the best and most innovative tyers around and Neil Sinclair who although well known as a river angler might not be familiar to everyone, Neil invented the double decker fly and has fished for the Scotland rivers team in numerous home internationals and world events.

I'm sure Alberto will post the relevant dates at the time.

The library is in Allander rd. G62 8DN.... up from M & S.
I think the cost is £3.
As far as I know they cater for all levels of tying. Some of your pals from casting club go

We meet every Thursday and alternate between tying nights, demos and guests. This week was supposed to be hairwing salmon flies but its changed, Kenny Sichi is demoing his Menteith flies which should be excellent. We also now have a group of complete beginners also doing well so no matter what your level get along. Finally we have Charles Jardine for the evening on the 26th which should be good.
