Northern Open 2013

Well the Northern Open has been run and won, but not by one and not by two, but by three well deserving casters.  In a tight and hard fought competition it came down to the Wet Fly for the winner to be decided. Congratulations to Daryl Wallis, John Kruska and Bruce Ratcliffe on some very good casting.  Well done also to Brynn Farkas in second and Andrew Connell in third.

The 2013 Northern Lights Casting Competition was held perfect casting conditions on Saturday 23 Feb 13.  25 casters registered for the event and many were accompanied by family and friends which added to the friendly atmosphere of the evening.  As can be seen in the video below (well done AJ), the weather was superb, the tucker terrific, the cast outstanding and the event a roaring success.  Where else in the world can attend a night casting event in such brilliant surroundings?

Cox-Connell Casting Trophy and Christmas Party

The Cox-Connell Trophy will be cast on 7 Dec 17 commencing at 7:30 pm at the Club's casting pool.

The Cox-Connell Casting Trophy is a Club perpetual trophy named after Glen Cox and Andrew Connell.  It was named after Glen and Andrew in recognition of their efforts in the construction of the Club's casting pool.

All casters use the same 7 weight rod and line in a dry fly casting format.  All members of the Club are encouraged to enter the competition.

The end of year BBQ is a great time to get together and organise those fishing trips during the Christmas period.  Come up, have a chat and see who's available to take you to their secret spot.  There will be a traditional Club Cristmas BBQ (read snag in bread) to be had and a quick General Meeting.

Aways a good night.
