Scientific Anglers who designed the first modern plastic-coated fly line way back in 1952 sent their international sales manager Jeff Pierce along with their chief research and development engineer Andrew Bosway to visit down under late last year.

Unfortunately the weather was not too kind to us.  So Andrew Summers from Mayfly Tackle has asked to come back to give everyone another chance to try out the new Scientific Angler lines.

The night will commence at 7 pm  on teh casting pool where you can try out all of the new range of lines in your own rod. When you need a rest, the world famous NSFFC BBQ will be cooking up a storm. Later, Andrew will talk to us about the latest developents in the world of fly fising.

Date: Thursday 7 April 2016

Time: 7 pm onwards

BBQ: Sausages, bread and soft drinks (GOLD COIN DONATION)
