Fly-tying Event at Trout fishery De Ruigenhoek

Sunny and warm Spring weather plus the fact that it was Mothers-day in the Netherlands, probably held the number of visitors at the Fly-tying Event at Trout fishery and pavilion De Ruigenhoek near Utrecht at a modest level. The people that signed up for one of the many workshops had an enjoyable day and returned home with many new ideas for tying flies.
