Curleys Trout Fishery Open Weekend

Fly Fishing at Curleys, Bolton

You’d think with the glorious weather we had last weekend that I’d have been fishing and you’d almost be right. Instead we went up to Gerrys of Morecambe to buy another Tubertini Boomerang and a couple of reels to match. More on this pairing another time. As that took longer than expected (tackle shops – they’re so hard to walk away from) there’s wasn’t much time for anything else on Saturday and Sunday, being another scorcher, was taken up doing the first garden tidy up of 2012.

The previous weekend we did manage to get to the Open Weekend at Curleys Trout Fishery where we each had a quick session with an instructor, polishing up our fly casting techniques. Also in attendance were Bolton Fly Tyers and Pat from Flytek who was demonstrating fly tying. We’ve signed up for 10 lessons from Pat which start this coming Wednesday and cover the basics all the way through to some proper imitations.

So, not much actual fishing going on but lots of fishy stuff.
