Simon Gawesworth

November 2nd, 2018

The famed Simon Gawesworth, Rio Products Brands manager, is to be in Queensland, accompanied by Sage ambassador Peter Morse. I shall unfortunately be away and miss both events but this is an event to attend if at all possible. Simon is A.P.G.A.I. and S.T.A.N.I.C. certified in the U.K. and C.I., Master and T.H.C.I. certified in the U.S by FFI. Simon will be at the Brisbane Fly Fishing Club meeting to be held at North Brisbane Football Club on the evening of 15 November 2018. The Brisbane Club then has both Simon and Peter at a casting day on 17 November at Wilston Grange Football Club.

I shall be assisting Peter Morse with a casting clinic to be held in Mackay on 11 and 12 July. Bookings may be made with Nic Moore at
Having recently spent a great (if very wet) week with the Mackay Wildlings, Nick, Peter, Justin and Graham, in Kiritimati I am looking forward to seeing them all again at this event.

Peter Morse has advised that the International Federation of Fly Fishers will be holding an instructor testing event in the Blue Mountains in September 2016. This will certainly give something to work towards for many aspiring fly casters. Details will become available on the International Federation of Fly Fishers web site in due course, but further details are as follows:
21st Sept THCI
22nd – 23rd Sept MCI
24-25th CCI

Paul Arden Clinics

November 1st, 2014

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.

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.
