Welcome to the August newsletter.
A lot has happened in the last month and we as a club embark on another year with a new committee. I would like to firstly thank the members for entrusting me with the President's position. It is a great honour and I will do everything possible to continue the great work that has been done by past committees. I would like to congratulate John Smith for his leadership last year and I am very fortunate to have John as vice president this year.
I would also like to acknowledge the other members of the outgoing committee, especially Glen Cox and Eric Smith. Both have contributed enormously to the club over many years. It is great to see newer and younger members on the committee and I am hopeful that with this 'new blood' we will achieve all that we set out to do this year.

Be inspired this autumn as RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival, the world's most extensive fishing film festival, hits theatres on the Australian leg of its 2013 worldwide tour.
In its 8th year, RISE is on a quest to revel in the diverse world of fly fishing, to connect anglers through shared experience, and to create public awareness of fly fishing's new vibrant emergence. The festival allows the fishing community to share their passion for the sport by attending film screenings across the country. It's the biggest kick-off to the fishing season there is!
