NEW CASTING INSTRUCTORS

December 3rd, 2010

You will note that several new Casting Instructirs have been added to the web site. Well known fly tier Shaun Ash passed the exam a few months ago in Melbourne and more recently Paul Goodey, Michael Kan and Duncan O’Connell qualified in Brisbane. Also passing in the Brisbane / Sunshine Coast area were George Forster from north east Victoria and Ward Nicholas from Townsville.
Congratulations to all.
The MCI examiners in the South East Queensland testing were Brian Henderson and Peter Morse. It is a compliment to the south east Queensland casting community that both commented on how well prepared the candidates were.
