We are nearly a month into our fishing season and there have been some good reports of fish caught. Due to family commitments I still haven’t had the opportunity to wet a line. Thank you to all of you who attended the September general meeting. We were able to hand out some more membership awards and give Pat Sheridan his many fishing awards he won during the past year. The club has some guest speakers pencilled in for the coming months, so please keep an eye out for notices about this. There will be more information in future newsletters.
There was a good turn out for the King Parrot Creek trip and our one fly competition was also well attended. Our club has a reasonably busy syllabus leading up to Christmas and into the new year. Over the grand final weekend, the club has a fishing trip to Cairn Curran. Please check our Facebook page or our website for details.
The October day trip is something a little different. We're off to Devil Bend Reservoir.
This is a terrific fishing destination within the Mornington Peninsula. The lake itself spanning over 250 hectares. Recently Parks Victoria funded 1.6 million dollars of upgrades to the facility. The site now has renovated fishing pontoons and newly established state of the art fishing platforms. The main floating pontoon extended by an impressive 36 meters to give land-based anglers access to deeper waters and more space.
All are encouraged to attend the November 2018 club trip, email myself or place you name on the club trip board.
