A fairly well attended outing by the Southeast Qld Flyfishers Club, with four boats and a small group of “beach based” flyfishermen on the spit on the north end of South Stradbroke Island.
the wetaher for once co-operated and despite a chill in the early morning the sun shona and the wind barely breathed on the Broadwater.
Almost all those present caught fish. Species included were taylor, trevally, bream, whiting, dart and the ever present flathead.
As always the event finished witha group of club members gathered around the barby kindly tended by Brian Ware.

Ebor 30 April 2010 to 2 May 2010

June 24th, 2010

Eight member of Souteast Qld Flyfishers Club made the annual trip to Ebor this year. The visit being in late autumn was, for several members, a first visit to the area athis time of year.
Fishing was challenging and not many fish were caught. However the visit added new waters to those previously fished by club members and a thank you to the local farmers who obliged by allowing club members to fish their waters must be noted.
The outing was much enjoyed by all.
