Happy New (Club) Year. The 2016-17 annual Club Competition has closed now – remember that all capture forms must be with the Recorder (Mick Peel) by the 14th July. The results will be announced at the Presentation Night in September. This year, the Presentation Night will be held on a Friday – the 1st of September at the Eastlakes Football Club in Kingston.

The recent June outing was the traditional Queen's Birthday long weekend trip to Narooma. This year the fishing was a bit slower than normal, but I heard the quality of fish was good and everyone that attended had a great time.

It looks like it will be a tight finish to the Club's fishing year with Anthony Heiser and Steve Bailey neck and neck in most Championship categories.

However, the rest of the pack is not far behind, so there's always the chance of a late run by any one of a number of "black horses".

Next month's outing is the traditional Queen's Birthday long weekend trip to Narooma. This outing usually produces some huge Australian Salmon off the beaches, so there's every chance of an upset in the Club Championship.

Hi everyone,

What a great month March is going to be.

The March outing will be to Narooma this Canberra Day Long Weekend for the annual Narooma Convention. This is traditionally a great outing for the Club and a great opportunity to show other ANSA clubs how good we are. The Canberra Fisherman's Club has won this event several times in the past; and I reckon this might be our year again. I hope you can make it!

Well summer has well and truly arrived and the fishing has been pretty hot too!

The first Club outing for 2017 was the traditional Australia Day long weekend outing to Tuross. Another well-attended outing, with a few good fish caught despite the windy conditions. It was great to hear members sharing intel on techniques and location at the Club BBQ…and to see the results the following day. The personal highlight for me was watching a metre-plus Flathead monster a 35-36cm flathead on the surface as I was bringing it to the net. Unfortunately, the smaller Flathead had taken the hook too deep and despite my best efforts the larger fish eventually spat out his meal… along with my hook!

Hi everyone,

What a great weekend for the Club’s cod-opening outing to Burrinjuck Dam, particularly if you were fishing in Steve Bailey’s boat! By all accounts he had a blinder, leading the way for CFC in the annual ‘grudge match’ with the Morven-Culcairn Fishing Club - a great effort, thanks to all that attended and did their best.

Firstly, a BIG congratulations to the Burrinjuck Chairperson (Sarah Borman), Sponsorship Officer (Anthony Heiser) and all the members that helped out at the 42nd Annual Burrinjuck Convention. I think entries were down a little this year; a few experienced members couldn’t make it and sponsors were feeling the tight economic times. However, the Club really banded together and things again ran very smoothly — it was a great event, there was a great atmosphere and the Canberra Fisherman’s club has a lot to be proud of – thank you all!
