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.
Also, in October the club’s annual auction night will be held on the 10th. This is a great opportunity to move items that you have at home that you no longer need. Preferably this would include fishing and outdoor gear including clothing. It is important, if you are wanting to sell items, you send a list of items and description to Alan Staton so that we can advertise it. I enjoy auction night because I can normally pick up a few bargains on the night. Last year, there was a 85litre Waeco Fridge go for $300.00. I picked up a Columbia soft shell jacket for $20.00. So as you can see, there are some wonderful chances to score a bargain. Please check our Facebook page or our website for details.
The club is also looking running a float tube course during the month of October. This will be conditional on numbers and expressions of interest. The club has 3 float tubes and in order to use them, one must have completed our float tube course. Further details at our October general meeting. There will be a day trip to Devil Bend Reserve later in the month please check our Facebook page or our website for details.
If you are fortunate enough to make a long week end out of the cup day week end our annual Freeburgh trip is a must do. Bookings are essential for this trip. Keep an eye on our website and/or our Facebook page for further details.
As always please take advantage of our fly-tying nights. These nights are wonderful opportunities to learn how to tie flies with some very experienced fly tiers. I look forward to catching up with you around the club.
