Club Newsletters

Volume 21 Issue 12 July 2018

Welcome to final issue of volume 21 of the Canberra Fisherman's Club's Newsletter and to the first month of the 2018-19 Fishing Year. The 2017-18 annual Club Competition has now closed, and the results will be announced at the Presentation Night on 22 September 2018. There have been some truly spectacular captures contributing to members' scores and some truly spectacular failures vying for this year's joke trophies.

In this month's newsletter, we'll be encouraging you to renew your ANSA membership, we have a report on our first outing for 2018-19, held at Wairo Beach, the results of our member survey on the future of the Canberra Carp-Out, and a ripping yarn from Jon Vogel about his recent visit to Far North Queensland.

But more on that later.

Volume 21 Issue 8 March 2018

Happy St Patrick's Day! If you're reading this newsletter today, I hope you are enjoying a tacky green-dyed lager of cold beer (I'm not sure they serve that down here but all the pubs and clubs served it back in Brisbane before I moved down here).

In this month's newsletter, we have flyers for the next lot of ANSA Conventions (the 25th ANSA Sydney Sportsfishing Tournament on 23-25 March 2018 and the ANSA South Coast Convention on 13-15 April 2018), and Zane's article for the recent 50th ANSA Narooma Convention, plus a selection of photos submitted by Chris Lemmon and Steve Bailey.
