Fly Tying 22 Aug 2018

Flytying will be run by Shaun with his Crustacean Bugger – now known to be effective both locally and in Italy! Normal time of 7:30PM at Raiders Weston Club.

According to Lyall it looks like a trout slayer to and would be perfect for taking on the fat trout a few of us have been catching at Lake Eucumbene over the yabby beds recently. The materials list is below and Shaun’s full tying instructions will be available in hard copy at fly tying on Wednesday so BE THERE!!!

Aug 2018 Burley Line (Newsletter Issue 135)

This issue comes out just in time for our AGM.  Don’t be frightened that you’ll be shanghaied into a job if you turn up – lots of work would have been done to ensure there are people willing to sign up to be on the executive.  That said, becoming a part of that team is a great way to help shape CAA to provide what you believe is important for a club.  If you want to make a difference, come along and put your hand up.

Was refreshing to see how many showed up for the casting instruction at Uriarra Crossing. Many thanks to John and Lyall for the photos – here’s hoping that others in the club could follow suit rather than leaving it to the ‘usual suspects’.

Thanks for those who provided material for this issue—a bit thinner than recently, but perhaps a measure of conditions out on the water – check out Phil’s beauty at the end of the issue.

Recipe – Eucumbene Trout Farm Smoked Trout Pizza

Lyall visited Peter and Karen Cottrell at the Eucumbene Trout Farm a couple of weeks ago. He hadn’t realised that they have a fantastic family style restaurant there which specialises in trout dishes and can be paired with excellent wines if that is what you like. Peter was kind enough to send Lyall their Smoked Trout Pizza recipe so he thought he should share it with our friends in Canberra Anglers’ Association.
