Fly tying series set to re-start

Successful angling engages a variety of skills - none more so than the tying of flies. They are the essential element in attracting, hooking and landing your chosen quarry. Salmon flies embody shape, movement and colour to attract a fish that stops feeding as it enters fresh water. Trout flies are designed to match the type of insect on which fish are feeding. 

IAC runs a close season fly tying class which has helped develop anglers’ skills and introduced novices to this fascinating pastime. And some have already experienced the thrill of catching a fish on a fly they’ve tied.

Accredited coaches and expert tyers lead the classes which will be held in the upstairs conference suite of Dow’s Bistro on Balloan Road, Inverness, from 7 to 8.30 pm each Wednesday evening. They will run from October 23 to December 11, break for the festive season, re-start on January 15 and close on February 26. 

Novices and non-members are welcome. Tools and materials can be supplied. Those who did not take part in the 2018/19 series should register by Friday, October 4, 2019, by text to 07785 287995 or e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.
