Social Tying Event – Alphlexo Crabs for Grunter

June 5, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

R200.00 – R250.00

Join us on Monday, 5 June, 6pm at the Fresnaye Sports Club for our next social tying event. These social events are aimed at building the fly tying and fishing community and create a space where we can all learn from one another. If you’ve always wanted to give fly fishing and tying a go, our social tying events are the place to be.

For this month’s event, Grunter whisperer and tickler of trout, Luke van den Heever, will be showing you exactly how he tie his Grunter Alphlexo Crabs. Alphlexo Crabs are super effective, especially for Luke’s local grunter in Knysna, but the trick is they need to be tied correctly. Luke will show you exactly how he ties his Alplexo Crabs for grunter, giving you pointers along the way.

This is a tie-along event, so please bring your vice, tools, and thread along. We’ll cover the rest of the materials. If you don’t have a vice and want to give fly tying a go, please reach out to us and we’ll sort you out.

Booking is essential and costs R250, which includes the following:

  • All the fly tying material for the flies, including extra to practice the pattern at home
  • A boerewors roll and chips
  • A beer
  • Entry into the evening’s raffle

There’s also a non-tying option that costs R200, which includes the following:

  • A boerewors roll and chips
  • A beer
  • Entry to the evening’s raffle

Bookings close on Monday, 5 June, at 8am.

Why do we do online bookings?

Some of you might wonder why we do online bookings, and it’s a great question. Here are the reasons:

  • It helps us prepare better if we know exactly how many attendees there will be. We pre-pack all the materials and and want to ensure that each person receives their own fly tying pack.
  • We can manage to ordering of food a lot better
  • Probably the main perk for you as a guest to one of our events is that you qualify for a 10% discount on any pre-orders. That means we send you a discount coupon that can be used on our shop prior to the event. Your order will be waiting at the event with your fly tying materials.
