However, Dave took time out to show an easy tie (and a good catching pattern) to three young visitors at the event and gave them the opportunity to tie up their own flies.

The pattern was the San Juan worm and was so popular that by the end of the second day there wasn't any Veniard Suede Chenille left on display and stocks of Veniard Magic Glass V-Rib was in short supply! David said "I get a real buzz out of being on fly tyer's row at the Glasgow Angling Centre."
Dave further points out that "the biggest buzz of all is getting a young tyer in the hot seat to tie a fly and without exception Philippa, Ryan and Nathan tied flies that I'd be happy to have in my fly box and fish with!" Apparently someone even suggested that the worm pattern could be used for salmon... sheer heresy.
