High fly with fly ty­ers at the Ash­ley Park Ho­tel

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

AF­TER 25 years of meeting at Eff­in­g­ham Golf Club, the Sur­rey branch of the Fly Dressers’ Guild is on the move.

As from next Mon­day (Septem­ber 11) the meet­ings will be held at the Ash­ley Park Ho­tel in Wal­ton.

Meet­ings are held from 8.30pm-10.30pm on the sec­ond Mon­day of the month.

Ash­ley Park Ho­tel is op­po­site the rail­way sta­tion, with park­ing avail­able at the ho­tel or the rail­way sta­tion car park.

A spokesman said: “The only ex­cep­tion is that maybe we will change the Fe­bru­ary date to co­in­cide with the Fly Fishing show held in Stafford­shire each year, so that we can have one of the in­ter­na­tional fly ty­ers talk to us on the fol­low­ing Mon­day – we would email mem­bers about this.

“Our meet­ings con­sist of talks by some of the lead­ing ex­perts in their field, show­ing you how things are done, with film shows about fishing in other coun­tries.

“We have a var­ied pro­gramme with many other gen­eral top­ics – some­thing for all fish­er­folk.

“We also hold fly ty­ing classes at Byfleet Vil­lage Hall.

“We also fish and hold fishing out­ings, and bar­be­cues two or three times a year.

“We meet from Septem­ber to May.

“In the sum­mer, we fish.”
