The festive season has come to an end for some of us whilst others are enjoying it all year round. The new year is looking promising reports from members and soical media are reporting good fishing to be had for those willing to put in the time and effort. Dry fly being the method of choice as the trout are looking up, which i can attest to.
We will be hosting Wayne Hevey from Four Wheel Drive Victoria, as our guest speaker for our first meeting for the year, the Feb Gen Meeting.
A working bee has been orginized for the evening of Thursday 9 Feb. We will need whipper snippers and edgers and plenty of willing hands.
February sees the club participating in the Darren Percy Birthday Trip Sunday 12th of February 2017 to the Steavenson River, with the Northern Lights casting competition being held on 18 Feb at 6pm. All are encouraged an welcome. There are a number of club events this month so check the web site for updates.
Bunnings Mill Park Fund Raising BBQ – 16th April Easter Sunday not the best of dates but it would be greatly appreciated for members to volunteer a few hours on the day.
The Steavenson River is a small clear freestone stream. The headwaters of the Steavenson River rise on the north–western slopes of the Yarra Ranges, below Mount Edgar and descend to flow into the Acheron River near Buxton. It’s only a little over an hour and a half from the club rooms.
There are numerous access points at bridges, camp grounds and where the road hugs the river’s edge, see the attached maps.
This is without doubt the first and best under lights casting event in Australia at Australia's premier casting location.
The night will commence around 6:30 however we would like all casters to arrive around 6 pm for registration. We will be casting the Dry Fly, ACF Skish and Wet Fly events.
The BBQ will be running hot, as it always does and cold drinks can be purchased, with free tea and coffee also available.
Hope to see you there.

The Marysville area has a number of highly productive medium to small productive waters within a short distance. Flows at the moment are reasonable and the fishing is fair to good. There are some very nice fish being caught and released around the area. If you have not fished the area or would like to find some new secret spots, then this is the trip for you.
