Happy new year folks. The club has started the new year on the run. We had our Bunnings fund raiser the first Saturday in January which was well attended by members helping. Melbourne turned on one of those days often joked about, where if you don’t like the weather, wait half an hour. Let me just say, it presented us with some challenges.
I hope you all had the opportunity to get out there and do some fishing during the break. I have seen some encouraging reports on Facebook from various members with some good size fish taken. Our club trip up to Murrindindi was well attended and it was great to see. We met up at Glenburn and our trip captain (Pat Sheridan) duly allocated the teams.
When: 21 Oct 17
Staying At: Day trip although Kendall A Camping Ground is a great spot if you can swing the extra day
Trip Coordinator: Pat Sheridan

The Rubicin River is one of the iconic Victorian rivers that is generally productive for a range of different
sized fish. Flows at the moment are probably not great however the fishing is fair to good. There are some very
nice fish being caught and released around the area.
