Fly Tying: Stephen Kerr
Ask and Expert:
Still confused by the difference between wet flies, dry flies, emergers, wee wets, streamers and when and how to use them? Never heard of CDC? Damon Scott will be explaining his favourite flies.
Main Meeting: 7.00 pm
David Cooper will be giving a presentation on New Zealand native freshwater fish with particular reference to their relevance to sports fish (like trout), the impact of introduced trout on the native species and perhaps a bit of “crystal ball gazing” about the future. David has over 50 years of dealing with live freshwater fish. First as an aquarist in the ornamental fish arena, as a conservationist concerned with freshwater fish (a member of the IUCH Freshwater Fish Specialist Group), an aqua-culturalist engaged in the commercial breeding of freshwater fish (native and introduced) and currently as an educator in the field and as a consultant building freshwater fish displays in zoos, museums and schools.
He is also an occasional, enthusiastic but highly unsuccessful trout fisherman.
As a reminder Rod & Reel will be open, so you will be able to pop out and stock up on your fishing supplies.
AFAC was formed in 1972 to encourage and promote the sport of flyfishing and to provide an organisation where members can share information, support and join in on fresh & saltwater flyfishing outings over each year.
The club provides both individual as well as family membership options to enable the whole family to get involved.
The club meets on the 2nd Monday of every month from February to December at Rod & Reel.
