June 2016 Burley Line Newsletter

hmm, not sure how this happened but maybe I’ve accidentally deleted the post advising that the June 2016 issue was uploaded?  Anyway, it was a bumper issue with a preview of Nathan’s report on pre-spawning browns on the Eucumbene River (eucumbene), report on the 2016 Tumut outing, some humour from Barry, tips on holding a fish for that happy snap without damage and more.

August 2016 Burley Line Newsletter

The depths of Canberra’s winter has seen a number of us head north to warmer climes.  Surprisingly some are back in Canberra already, just in time for the snow!  In this issue JQ has shown us that we don’t need to go so far away from home to benefit from nice weather – the sky and sea look perfect in the cover photo.  Lyall has also provided some enticement for us to pursue local opportunities – nice looking fish is part of the content.  Lyall has been very busy with new promotional flyers (preview in in this newsletter) as well as new bumper stickers.  First entries in the ‘notable fish list’ have appeared (remember that official recordings are to be made in the little book brought to meetings).  Lots of other news items.  Click on the link below:


July 2016 Issue of Burley Line Newsletter

JQ has put in a stirling effort in the face of work pressures, regional Internet black spots and a pedantic copy editor (Bill!) to produce this month’s Burley Line. A mammoth 24 page issue includes some great material about recent events provided by Jason M and Lyall. Representing the club in multiple fora. Great to hear from them and we’re always looking for stories from members folks.
