Fly-tying on Sanday with Primary 4,5,6 & 7


Primary pupils in action at the Sanday School and their flies on display.


Over the last two days, the primary 4, 5, 6 & 7 learnt the basics of fly-tying, while working on the Arctic Explorers. As you can see on the pictures, the results of their first attemps at tying flies are pretty spectacular! Most of the flies were tied on #1 hooks which are much too big for “troot” (especially the ones we currently have in the shed! ;-)), but were a bit easier to work with. However, the P7 pupils even managed to try their hand at tying a proper trout fly, the Black Pennel, on a size 10 hook and there is no doubt that some of these flies would be trout catchers!

Well done to all the pupils involved in these activities and who have shown great skills in listening to instructions and in concentration and generally a very positive attitude.

Feel free to leave your comments!
