This was an annual Club trip for many years on the Australia Day Holiday long weekend in January. Many of the long term Club members have cut their fly fishing teeth on this trip over the years. New members are encouraged to attend this trip, as there are usually plenty of fish in the River. We will endeavour to buddy you up with a more experienced member to fish with, for at least part of the weekend if possible.
All are encouraged to attend the November 2017 club trip, email myself or place you name on the club trip board.
