Canterbury & District Angling Association’s classes for 2018 begin next month. The course starts on Wednesday, February 7, from 7.30pm and will run for eight weeks. Subject to replies, there will be two separate classes, one for beginners and also a progressive class. The beginners will start with an introduction to the tools and the basics of tying, leading to the first steps of tying simple flies. All tools are provided for those without the necessary equipment. The classes will be taken by members of the Fly Dressers Guild and two fly patterns will be shown, which may then be tied during the evening. Materials and hooks are provided for both classes. There will be a small charge of £25 to cover hooks and materials for the eight weeks. Telephone 01227 710830 for further details.
