Second ever trout on fly – Eucumbene River Trout  caught during the big East Coast Low - Chris Guion

I would like to start with an important reminder that there will be a Special General Meeting held prior to the Annual General Meeting on WEDNESDAY 10th August at 7:30pm. We need to have a majority of financial senior members at this meeting to have a quorum to run the meeting. After nine years of putting my time into the club as a committee member, I will be standing down at the AGM.

Catch & Release – Too good to take home! (Though imagine the cutlets off this thumping Brown) - Phil L

By the time you read this the 2015/16 club fishing competition year will be over and now you will have to wait until the Presentation Night on the 10th of September to find out who the lucky prize winners are so good luck all. Remember if you have been lucky enough to fish the last part of the fishing year and have made some captures, then the paperwork needs to be to the recorder by the 14th of July. Don’t forget!!

The information will be up on the club website, included in the newsletter and on our Facebook page and soon on the events calendar so you will once again be able to register interest through the website

Well the 9th Annual Canberra Carp Out is done and dusted and another successful event run by the club thanks to the help from all our club volunteers. Without the support of our membership we certainly could not run this event. So from myself and the committee I wish to thank everyone who assisted. We are still tidying up a few loose ends and hope to have the final figures for the next general meeting.

I would like to also thank all of our Canberra Carp Out sponsors below who, without their support, we just could not get this event off the ground.

Hi all,
It has been very busy, as it always is at this time of the year with the Canberra Carp Out arrangements, maintaining our regular outings, keeping on top of general business and still getting some fishing done at the same time.
Firstly, another successful outing for the club and a good turnout at the Narooma Convention for all that attended, it's always great to see the club and its members up there in the running for this event with some good captures.

G'day all,

Well the festive season has come and gone and I hope you all managed a safe and prosperous New Year that including time for a fish. Wendie and I spent New Year's Eve in the boat on Lake Burly Griffin pretending we were on Sydney Harbour with a glass of champagne, feasting on chicken and other treats with a couple of fishing rods out on the troll.

Hi all,

Firstly, I would like to congratulate all the award winners at the 2014-15 CFC Presentation Night. I’m sure all that were there would agree that it was a great night. It was great to see it well attended this year with only a few of the winners absent so I will try to present the unpresented awards at the next general meeting.

Hi all,

Well we start this month’s newsletter with a report that Team Canberra Fishos had a fantastic time attending the Gold Coast Flathead Classic on the 1st – 3rd October and managed to finish up in the top 20 out of 217 teams. We already have a returning team for 2016 and would highly recommend it to other members to join us as the more teams, the merrier. Also, I have to say; ‘Great work!’ by the Gold Coast Sportfishing Club for putting on an excellent event. Anthony has written a great article later on in the newsletter about the trip.

G’day all,

Firstly, a BIG THANK YOU once again to all our members that were involved in the successful running of our 41st Annual Burrinjuck Convention. To our Burrinjuck Chair this year, Anthony Heiser - who as always puts in a big effort, made sure all the food and hire equipment was ordered, picked up and shipped to the event. To our Sponsorship Officer, Michael Jewry for his first time at taking this type of role in making contact with the sponsors and arranging for delivery of sponsored goods - without such tremendous help and support from our sponsors, the event would simply not run.
