Introducing Vice Squad!

Introducing Vice Squad (by Tudor Caradoc-Davies):

What: fly-tying and fly fishing chit-chat
Where: CPS Club Room, 4th Floor, The Mercantile Building, 63 Hout Street, Cape Town
When: Wednesday evening, 18th Feb, from 6pm till late
Who should attend: This is not just about fly tying, but also a chance to talk fly fishing with a bunch of like-minded people and up your game. it is open to CPS members and non-members alike. Hopefully the non-members feel inspired to join…

How it works: While we have asked several guys to come and demo a few patterns, this is most definitely an informal evening. If you would like to tie, bring your fly tying kit with you. If you are not (yet) into fly tying or if specific patterns being demoed don’t interest you, grab a drink at the bar, watch one of the great fly fishing DVDs we will have on the projector, check out the CPS library of fly fishing books, bring your fly boxes, pick someone’s brains, plan trips with mates… basically kick back and enjoy yourself.

What to bring:
– good vibes and an inquisitive mind
– fly tying kit
– fly boxes
– BYOB or bring cash for the CPS bar
– pizza will be ordered during the evening so bring cash for that (R100 usually covers it).
