14th November – Jeff Wilkinson
Jeff Wilkinson runs Razor Sharp Flies. He ties quality flies commercially to order and also supplies a limited range of fly tying materials prepared by himself. He is perhaps one of the most innovative and creative fly tyers and is also a successful angler on the competition scene and is a regular fisherman at Grafham and Farmoor.
Please note that this meeting has unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the general election. The hall at Harston is a polling station. We hope to be able to rebook Al Owen for next season.
