Last night I spent an evening most convivial being taught the rudimentary skills of fly-tying by Mr. Bruno Vincent at his new old-fashioned-modern 'night class in a public house'. The evening - an intimate affair which took place around a table in the shadow of St. James Church - was upstairs at The Three Kings off Clerkenwell Green. Those gathered were taught the basics and were fed by a complimentary pie and a pair of pints. We left with flies that all agreed would kill. Mr. Vincent is currently booking classes for the New Year and he tells me that should you wish to buy a seat for someone at one of the classes as their Christmas present or if you have a young lady or gentleman you wish to impress please call him on telephone number 07748 148242 to make arrangements. I heartily recommend it.
