Had a great first day with many visitors taking an interest in the rods on display. The plan was to offer a glimpse of rod development from about 1850 to 1970 on both side of the Atlantic. A timeline of British-made reels also added to the interest.
There's another day tomorrow and lots more to see. Fly tying and casting demonstrations all day, some 20 or so stalls offering fly tying materials, bespoke rods and wonderful accessories, as well as Paul Morgan from Coch-y-Bonddu books. Tickets £10 at the door at The Stirling Court Hotel, Stirling University.
Just a week today and Whiteadder's Virtual Fly Fishing Museum will burst out into the real world at Fly Fest 2018, Scotland's very own Fly Fishing Show.
