Shot of the Month – Paul Slaney

Red White & Blue.

In the wake of the Paris attack Paul Slaney was moved to tie this ‘Hairwing’ based on the French Tricolore.

This photo won ‘Shot of the Month’ in the February edition of the Fly Fishing Fly Tying magazine.

Paul is a very valued member of C&DAS and of our Fly Tying Club which he attends regularly and gives us demonstrations of his wonderful fly tying skills.

He says he enjoys his evenings with us as it is very informal, relaxed and treats it as a Social Occasion.

It’s worth looking at Paul’s website http://flytying.me/ to see more of the excellent flies he has tied.

Look in the What’s On! page for details if you would like to attend our Fly Tying Club, or contact me on

list where I confirm or remind our members of the time and dates of our sessions.
