SE Qld Flyfishers Club are having a twentieth anniversary celebration this year. The event is to be held in conjunction with the Variety Toga Competition held at Borumba each year. Dates are the 20th October weekend. Ensure you book in for the competition, which has great sponsored prizes, to assist Jeremy and Jude with the catering.

Queensland Flyfishing Trial

March 15th, 2017

The second 2017 Queensland Flyfishing trial is scheduled to be held at Uncle Billy’s on the 28 – 30 July 2017. Once again the weekend outing is hosted by SE Qld Flyfishers Club. The event is open to all, but points toward the Australian National Championships may only be gained if you are a financial member of Fly Fish Australia at the time of the competition, so please ensure your subs are paid. Booking of accommodation should be done via the club web forum.

Sage X

June 20th, 2016

Sage have released a new model fly rod – the Sage X. In both salt (5 – 11 wt) and freshwater (3 – 11 wt) versions it is a fast action rod enabling you to “dig deeper into the rod and access the lower sections, shifting power closer to the angler.” This rod should be well worth trying. My first models (a 7 and an 8 wt) are on order already.

April 3rd, 2016

The first 2016 Queensland Flyfishing Trial is to be held in conjunction with the Variety Bass competition to be held at Maroon Dam over 29 April – 1 May 2016. Entries should be done with Jeremy on the Variety web site – accommodation is at the venue.
