Flies And Tying / Re: What was the first fly you tied?...
« Last post by stonepark on Yesterday at 06:27:07 PM »
Some nice memories by the sounds of that Highlander.

@stonepark I wonder if there's still a fly tying club around Kilmaurs, apparently there's one in Dreghorn that I'll hopefully get to post season.


Unfortunately, I have no idea, something tells me it was associated with Kilmaurs Angling Club at the time when they still had access to North Craig reservoir before it was drained?

Dreghorn is only 4-5 miles away so it may be your best bet.

I agree with you about the global warming nonsense The ultimate catch-all excuse. It's a lefty religion - lke an act of God, thou shalt not question.   ::)

How are these well made videos being promoted to the medi and the public at large ?

Craig is very good at making promotional films (look at his Easter Elchies beat video and Balmakewan beat video).
The FMS videos are well made, even through the content is somewhat glossing over the inglorious failures of some of those involved.

Again, I got as far as A Wells mentioning global warming.
Some of the feckers in this need removed, others a reality check and some a good boot in the rectum. They need reminded of who ultimately pays their wages and what they are there for.

I don't think they are. I stumbled across them. The series is excellent.

It still goes on a lot on Lewis and Harris and is why I cannot, with a clear conscience, promote fishing on a lot of fisheries on the island.
(I had three full nights sleep between mid June and the end of August last summer).
