Grayling meeting Feb 11th 7.30 Rutland Arms Bakewell. Also BFFI Fair

Hi All

A reminder of next weeks meeting at the Rutland Arms, Bakewell.  Wednesday, February 11th.
Stuart Crofts will be giving his new presentation on May Fly.  Stuart has been studying the may fly, and has some fascinating new information for us.  

The remaining meeting is on March 11th with Steve Cooper of Cookshill.  

The Antiques Road Map of Great Britain is featuring Bakewell and may well include the Fly Fishing Shop and Mr Peter Arfield - BBC2 at 6.30.  On TV this Thursday 12th Feb.

Just to whet your appetite for the fly fishing season ahead here is a picture of the Derbyshire Dove in snow and frost taken on the first day of February 2015.
We had walked from Hartington, across Highfield Lane and on down through Biggin Dale, arriving at Wolfscote Dale where it meets the river Dove.
I believe the fishing rights on this water, up and down of this stretch, have been sold. So who will be fishing them this year? Or am I incorrect and they have not been sold?
Certainly the river looked great – though we saw no dippers – just tree creepers.

To further whet your appetites for the season ahead - don't forget it is the BFFI Fair this weekend.
