Grayling Society winter meetings Bakewell, Derbyshire 2015 to 2016

Grayling Fishers programme

Below is the programme for this winters talks.  As usual we will be meeting at the Rutland Hotel in Bakewell, starting at 7.30pm.  The cost remains the same at £3.00.  Everyone welcome, you don't need to be a member.

October 14  Don Stazicker
         A Colorado Flyfishing Roadtrip
Don is traveling to Colorado in September, and he will be brining us some first class video and stills from his trip - he tells me you can get pretty close to the trout in some of the tailwaters there.  Don is a highly-skilled fisherman and a GAIA-certified fly-fishing instructor, and those of you who have seen his work before will know that he is also a first class photographer.

November 4  Alan Henshaw
  Grayling in the UK  plus Fish Rearing.
Alan is the Team Leader at the Environment Agency National Coarse Fish Rearing Unit at Calverton.  Alan will be telling us about fish rearing, and the history of the unit.  He will also talk about the history of Grayling in the UK.  I have been told by those who heard Alan speak last year that this was one of the best talks they had been to - not be missed.
December 2  Jack Perks
Jack is a professional wildlife photographer, with a keen interest in conservation.  
Jack aims to photograph all the freshwater fish species in the UK - over 50 in total, and has studies the lifestyle and behaviour of each species.   He will don his wet suit and snorkel when appropriate to get up close to the fish.
He has worked for the BBC filming for Springwatch and Countryfile, and on angling series such as Mr Crabtree goes Fishing.
January 13  Mike Green
Angling Escapades
Although Mike is a passionate pike fisherman, he is an all-round angler who loves all types of fishing.  He has traveled to many countries in pursuit of all manner of fish - including carp fishing in Ireland and France, to catching Peacock Bass from the Amazon and Rooster fish in Baja, Mexico.
February 10  Stuart Crofts
Stuart needs no introduction, this time he will be doing some fly tying, and importantly talking about how and when to fish the flies, helpful for those who don't make their own flies.

March 9  Dave Southall
        A Fly For All Seasons
Dave is a regular contributor to angling magazines, and well known for his imitative flies.  Dave will be showing us the invertebrates that one might expect to encounter at any season of the year and the imitations that might be used for both trout & grayling.
