I received an update on the Ozfish Unlimited AUSTRALIA FLY FISHING FESTIVAL.

Saturday 6th April Bruce Neale Drive Penrith, commencing 9am.

Juan Del Carmen, internationally renowned fly fisher, has organised the second annual AUSTRALIA FLY FISHING FESTIVAL and it’s still all FREE.

The event has been moved to Saturday April 6th which will make the temperature very pleasant.

Maintaining the successful format of last year’s festival, a cast of excellent presenters will demonstrate and talk on subjects as diverse as blackfish on fly, making the cast work for you, wind, knots, guiding experiences, fishing Sydney and casting heavy gear. We expect at least ten separate presentations and workshops, both on the river and on the grass, plus a host of suppliers and industry experts to be on hand to answer your every question.

The current list of presenters and demonstrators (more will be added):

Peter Morse MCI. Wildfish. Sage. Reddington.

Rod Harrison TFO rods.

Cameron McGregor River Escapes. Vision.

Emilio Caggianno Maxia Flyrods.

Josh Tredinnick Flyfishing movie director.

Clinton Isaac Australian Fly Fishing Lodge. Scott.

Royce Shanks discussing catching ludderick on fly.

Manic Tackle.

May Tackle.

Jack Marss Australian Fly Casting Distance Champion.

James Gay discussing two handed rods and casting.

Tony Loader MCI. THCI.

Loop Tackle.

Echo Rods.

Juan del Carmen Advanced Fly Fishing School.

Plus a quality raffle so bring your money with you. All proceeds raised will be used to fund next year’s event.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be available from the Nepean Rowing Club’s PADDLES RESTAURANT as well as fairly decent coffee throughout.

Lunch is scheduled from 12.30pm and dinner at 6pm for those who wish to enjoy some fly fishing comradery. This event is targeted at both the experienced and the novice, so the less you know, the more you’ll learn!

Registration is free and is not essential but it makes my life easier via Eventbrite.

Facebook will be updated as information comes to hand.

Please feel free to phone Mark on 0428653080 or Juan on 0410935609 for further information.
