Guest speaker: Malcolm Greenhalgh – Grayling flies (old and new)

6th November, 2014 – Malcolm Greenhalgh

Malcolm GreenhalghMalcolm Greenhalgh is both a naturalist and a fly fisherman. After reading biological sciences and researching estuary ecology for his PhD he lectured for sixteen years before becoming a freelance writer on his fortieth birthday (in 1986).

Although Malcolm has fished in many far-flung corners of the world, he still enjoys pottering about in his own rivers and lakes in north-west England (and his fortnight at mayfly-time on Ireland’s Lough Erne), and he is proud to be the Vice President of the best fly-fishing club in the region, Bowland Game Fishing Association. He has written over twenty books and has contributed to a wide range of magazines and writes a regular blog for FlyFishing and FlyTying.

During his visit to the Congleton Fly Tying Club Malcolm will be tying a selection of grayling flies – both old and new.
