We have a regular programme during the winter months and casual meetings during the rest of the year. Join us at the Lawns Hotel, Chellaston to learn more about fly fishing from a host of professional speakers and club members who are always happy to give you their opinion on absolutely anything! Meetings are open to all club members and the buffet and bar ensure it's a truly social occasion.
