|Simon continued his presentation in the Discovery Centre
This was a very well attended free ticketed event at the Discovery Centre. Simon Kidd is the Snowbee Sales & Marketing Manager and a well known international angler who competes for England in world fly fishing events. Due to constraints on space it was necessary to book a place although one or two were unable to make it on the evening. About 35 anglers came along including members and non-members.The committee had a special new members deal for anglers who signed-up during the evening and we would like to welcome those who took advantage of the offer and are now BFFA members.
It was a beautiful evening for the 7pm start and Simon had set up on the lawn below the Discovery Centre where he told us about a range of new Snowbee products including lines and rods. He gave us an impressive demonstration of his casting skills - very impressive! - and showed us what could be achieved with well matched gear and quite a lot of practice. The new for 2019 Spectre Line and the Prestige G-XS Graphene Fly Rods looked particularly good.
As the light went we adjourned to the Discovery Centre for a ploughman's supper - perhaps that should be an anglers supper - organised by Richard and his helpers. Simon continued his presentation with a talk about some more of the gear that Snowbee had developed. Simon held everyone's attention for the whole evening and his knowledge of tackle and the angling trade made for a fascinating and informative presentation.
