Fifteen of us left in a min-bus from Abergavenny to attend the ‘British Fly Fair International’.
Geraint,Ben,Martin,James, Rob, Steve, Adrian, Stephen, Justin, Neil, Ricky, Malcolm, Jeff, Dave,Lee and of course ‘Monkey’ our mascot.
1st stop was the “Beefeater” at Monmouth where the “Breakfast Club” enjoyed a full breakfast with literally as much as you can eat for £8.75.
Stuffed to the gills we proceeded to the show where we were presented with a vast display of stands selling all anyone could wish for their fly tying needs.
One of the first stands we saw this amazing display of fly tying created by Mike Townend called the “Wee Scottish Dragon”.
Mike informed us that it took him about 3 months to create this masterpiece.
Marc Petijean gave a wonderful display of the History of the CDC and created six various flies in 40 minutes to illustrate this history.
It was appreciated by our members and commented on as the best demonstration of the day.
A big thank you to Geraint for organizing the day and to Ricky for driving us safely to and from the venue.
