One Fly Competition

The Club’s annual One Fly Comp traditionally is great day to catch up with members and friends, get in some casting practice and tune up fish catching skills for the coming season.

This year’s One Fly Comp will be held at the Eildon Trout Farm located at 460 Back Eildon Road (see info/map below).  Cost for the day is $35 and includes tea, coffee and bickies, plus a BBQ lunch.  Beer Wine and Soft Drinks will be available for purchase.

The facility opens at 9am and as in past years, we’ll start with the “Fly Draw” at 9:30am sharp, so don’t be late!! There’ll will be prises for; The Heaviest Fish, The Most Fish and the person who tied (or donated) the fly that caught the most fish. Full rules are at the end of this info sheet, but don’t forget the aim of the day is to have fun!
