There were no losers at the close of Inverness Angling Club’s 2017/18 fly tying classes last night (March 29) as all showed a significant development of their skills. But achievements were recognised in a little contest to design and tie a ‘Ness Centenary Salmon Fly’ incorporating all the colours of the club’s logos. Experienced tyer Graham Forbes was judged to have submitted the best fly overall. Among the novices, Eric Macleay tied the best fly with Jamie Urquhart the runner-up. All three received £20 vouchers sponsored by David Dyce, Bill Byers and the club. Details about the 2018/19 classes, starting in November, will be posted during the summer.
