With Winter is fast approaching, and with the streams closing soon to allow for spawning, the lakes will become our destination of choice in the coming months.
There are a number of Club events to be held in June, so please visit the web site to keep yourself informed.
The AGM is not too far away, and there a number of positions will need to be filled. We would ask that our members consider joining the committee, and keep this great club of ours strong. So please, if you are considering stepping forward, please feel free to approach myself, or any of the other committee members for a chat about it.
The Annual Dinner and Presentation Night is to be held on 19th August, at the Clubrooms, and ask all members to make the effort to attend the night.
The more, the merrier! On the night, don't forget to bring along a gift for the raffle table. The other main event coming up for the Club, is the annual One Fly
Fishing trip, which will be held at Tranquil Rises on the 27th August this year. Cost for the day is $35 including a BBQ lunch. This is always a great day for members of all skill levels to enjoy....
The Royal Coachman Trip was held over the weekend of 20/21 May, with a number of members attending the event.
Some came up and fished either day, while a few of us stayed overnight, where we were joined by the largest contingent from Red Tag to fish this event for a number of years.
Many tall tales of fish caught and lost were told around the campfire, with the stories typically becoming more exaggerated, as more drinks were consumed...
It was a great evening, where the Red Tag members really enjoyed letting us know that they caught the biggest fish of day! Alas, it was all in jest, and we gave as good as we got! Overall, a great weekend away, and one many will be back for next year....Look forward to seeing you around the clubrooms.
Keep Calm, and FlyfishDomenic Bono - President NSFFC
David was born in Sydney, Australia, but grew up in America after his father, a geologist, moved the family to Boston in 1965 to attend Harvard and thence to Champaign, Illinois two years later where he taught at the University of Illinois.
David’s first serious fly fishing experiences were on one of his dad’s summer field trips to Wyoming at the age of eleven or twelve when one of the professors loaned him a rod and reel and showed him the basics of trout fishing with a fly on the Wind River. It’s been a serious addiction and never far from the front of his mind for over forty years.
The night commences at 7:30 pm with guests requested to start arriving from 7:00 pm. Dinner will be served at 8:00 pm and will consist of a spit roast meats and roast vegetables followed by dessert. Alcoholic drinks are BYO, soft drinks, tea and coffee will be provided. The cost of the night is $35 per head.
