JQ is leading “High Country Trout” in April. The original dates clash with a Fly Fish Australia competition so our event has been brought forward one week – Fri 5 to Sun 7 Apr.
Note that this unfortunately clashes with the revised date of 6 Apr for the Penrith Fly Fishing Festival (though this is not strictly a CAA event).
So much on – so few weekends! 🙂
Got the following from Luke:
On my way back from the coast, I decided up pull up for break and have a quick flick on the river at a particularly ‘fishy’ looking pool. I was lucky enough to land 3 bass, all around the 30cm mark and dropped a couple more. I could only stay for half an hour so I’m definitely keen to get back there and spend some more time exploring the area.
Update on Lake Wallace progress.
These have arrived via Steve. Two items piqued my interest:
- Seems NSW anglers have similar access rights to water as those found in NZ … I will await with interest to see what that really means. Much has been said to me about the “Queen’s Chain” alongside rivers in NZ.
- Chair of RFNSW is to “write to Snowy Monaro Regional Council about facilitating opportunities for recreational fishing access and stocking Trout at Lake Wallace near Nimmitabel.” There has been a response already – unfortunately not positive. Steve assures us that MAS is still on the case.
Some interesting observations on how the brown trout run progressed – somewhat encouraging but less so for rainbows. The issue of cormorants and pelicans in the trout breeding areas has been raised with the environmental department – let’s see what transpires.
CAA just learnt about this opportunity. Antia from UMDR emailed this bug workshop flyer. The one in Adaminaby will look at water bugs in the high country so will be of great interest to fly fisherman.
Friday 2 November from 10:00am – 3:00pm in Adaminaby at the Community Hall.
Saturday 3 November at Lion’s Youth Haven, 244 Kambah Pool Road, Kambah from 10:00am – 3:00pm.
Waterbug Workshop Nov2018
Waterwatch is again looking to us report. The report can be submitted on line.
A good discussion in the Canberra Times.
We have learnt that Bryan’s funeral has been arranged at the Norwood Park Crematorium 2pm Wednesday 3rd October 2018.
It is with sadness that we have received news of Bryan’s passing.
Bryan was a long term member and ongoing supporter of Canberra Anglers. He served as president about 50 years ago and spoke about our second decade during our 60th anniversary dinner. CAA granted life membership in 2013 – a photo of him receiving the certificate is in the Sep 2013 Burley Line
. A tribute piece is in the Canberra Times.
Bryan was a noted raconteur and his stories and ready advice will be sorely missed.
The AGM has passed and subs are due. New and renewing members are encouraged to process their application using the web form. This also provides advice on e- banking account. Please contact Bill (either via his normal email or via the Burley Line link on our home page.
