Social Tying Event – Stacked Flies for Garrick

September 4 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

R200.00 – R250.00

Join us on Monday, 4 September 2023, 6pm at the Fresnaye Sports Club for our next social tying event. These social events aim to build 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, we’ve invited Tyrone Knight (check out his Instagram profile) to share one of his favourite flies for Garrick. He’ll also share some insights on how to target these special fish on fly. We will also have a couple of fly rods at the event that you can cast and will have a small casting competition.

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.

As an added bonus, the guys from the Zandvlei Recreational Angling Association will be there to tell you all about the conservation work they’ve been doing and planning. Also, how you can get involved to protect this gem.

There will also be a selection of Garrick Flies for sale from the guys over at OG Fly Studio. These flies are designed and tested on Zandvlei and are the best of the best.

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, 4 September, at 8am sharp.

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 want to ensure that each person receives their own fly-tying pack.
  • 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.
