Clatworthy Fly Fishing Club Events – 2nd half 2018


An evening with Charles Jardine
Raleghs Cross Inn. http://www.raleghs-cross.co.uk/
Thursday 14th June 6:30 (7pm start) – 9:30pm.

For many fly fishers Charles needs no introduction; author, illustrator, artist and fly fishing guru his passion for the sport is legendary. I am delighted that he will be sharing a few hours with us where he will be demonstrating casting techniques and then, an open forum, where no doubt his infectious enthusiasm for angling will inspire us there and then to grab a rod and wet a line…
