Seeing as how Paul is away snowboarding or something I thought I should update you on something that was discussed at our last committee meeting. Essentially some members have asked us if it is possible to run some kind of fly tying evening. At roughly the same time a local owner of a pub – The Islay Inn at the bottom of Kelvinway approached Paul and stated he would be willing to provide some space in the pub for some guys tying flies.
What a nice cooncidence!
Members would also be able to partake in a few whiskies at the same time. The proposed night is a Wednesday (so it does not coincide with other local tying groups members might attend) and will possibly be every two weeks. The night will comprise of some tying, some alcoholic beveragesand the watching of some fishing DVD’s on the pub telly. The club is also considering footing the bill for some vices and tying materials so folk can come along and have a go with no expense.
Ordinarily I would then say lets discuss this in the River Kelvin Angling Association Forum however it is totally gubbed at the moment. While I try and fix it (be warned all posts may be wiped) you can head over to Urban FlyFisher where I will make a special post.
I hope that is ok with you guys.
Hi chaps – the official forum is now live – you must use your real name and must input your permit number when asked – they are then checked against the database to make sure you are who you say you are.
Only members of the KAA can join and the purpose is to make it even easier to ask questions and put forward your ideas – some might say picking up the phone and giving the secretary a bell was easy however he does work and it gives others a chance to share the responsibility of answering questions. It will also hopefully combat the gossip, conjecture and hearsay that appears to go hand in hand with helping you guys catch a fish.
So go and join in the discussions – we hope you enjoy and find it useful.
Hi Chaps – just a quick note to say that the finishing touches are being put on the shiny new much asked for official forum thingy – feel free to sign up however your accounts will not be activated until all the people that are able to check off permit numbers against names have got all the info.
Oh aye – make sure you use your real name – no nicknames and you must supply your permit number so that only association members can access the booty.
Additionally as this is an official Association forum there is an absolutely huge user policy which you should all read – essentially it just makes sure that if your fingers burst into flames as you type not only cant you sue us but we can also throw you in the river without any comeback whatsoever.
Seriously – read the user policy..when you get access, which will be soon…
