Paul Arden of Sexyloops fame (if you are not on this forum as a serious fly caster you should be) will once again be giving clinics on the Gold Coast.
On 15 November 2014 he will be giving an update clinic for any qualified CCI’s.
On 16 November he will be giving a general clinic. Both will be held at Currumbin Special School and bookings can be made via this web site of the SE Qld Flyfishers web site.
This opportunity is not to be missed.

SE Qld Flyfishers Club has an Extravaganza Weekend outing to Camp Lakefire at Maroon Dam from Friday 31 January to Sunday 2 February 2014.
This is an unusual outing in that it will include some bass fishing but will also be holding fly fishing workshops, including seminars and workshops on casting, fly tying, flats fishing and other practical aspects of fly fishing. Peter Morse MCI and several of the club members will be hosting these seminars and at a cost of $ 30 for non club members it should prove to be an absolute bargain and also great fun. Further details can be seen on the club web site. Accommodation can be arranged directly with Camp Lakefire and meals will be supplied at an extra $ 50 per person.
One that we recommend.

Jim Williams finished in 12th position overall individual and the Queensland team finished in 4th position in the team event.
Well done Queensland.

The Currumbin CCI testing held in July went well for South East Queensland.
The examiners were Master Casting Instructors Peter Morse (who also co-ordinated the event), Carl McNeil, Brian Henderson and Tony Loader.
Successful local candidates were:
Peter Sergeant and
Kylie Sergeant (the first lady CCI in Qld)
Congratulations to all.
The South East Queensland Flyfishers Club must now surely have the most members qualified as CCI’s of any club in Australia.

The Queensland team of Jim Williams, Jon Burgess, Ez Sarvan, Alex Meynink and Ward Nicholas attended the 2012 Australian Flyfishing Championships at Beckenderra over the 23 and 24 November 2012. Despite the fact that the team are limited in their preparation (after all there are no trout in Queensland) Jim Williams, last years winner, finished in a very creditable fourth place. The team were assisted in their efforts by Tie’n'Fly Outfitters.
