We are the NQ Flyfishers
We are a North Queensland based club with members in Townsville, Ingham and the Whitsundays. The club has a current membership of about 25 but our membership is growing steadily, with a great group of guys that enjoy getting out and about with mates and promoting fly fishing as a sport as well as a recreational pastime. We meet on the second and last Thursday evenings of each month from 730pm, fish as a club once a month, and also enjoy regular fly casting practice with our very own FFF Certified Casting Instructors. On any given weekend you will be sure to see atleast 1 or 2 of us out and about, fishing somewhere....
We're trying a couple of different things this yera, starting with having a "theme" for each month. We are aiming to have a different club member provide the lead for each theme.
The June theme this year is "Mackerel", Brad has volunteered to run us through his NQ vampire at the tying night on 8 June. We will discuss options for the end of month trip, however at this stage we are looking at a Bay trip somewhere for this one.
Please make sure you check the calendar below so you don't miss out on anything throughout the year.
I'm ALWAYS on the lookout for stories and pics to keep the site moving, so if you have an interesting outing, some useful tips, techniques or a step by step for a favourite fly pattern, send them on through and I'll d my best to get them up ASAP. Please be mindful of pic sizes though and if you can reduce them to 1024x768 pixels that'd be fantastic, as they can be easily emailed and still edited without losing too much definition.
Please keep at me if I don't put something up straight away, I can get caught up with life sometimes.
Visitors and new members are always welcome!!
As a member club of ANSA Queensland we are proud to have put in place our NQFF Inc. Monitoring Plan for the local areas that we fish. For details of the ANSA QLD Monitoring program please make sure to visit http://www.ansaqld.com.au/monitoring-overview/. The ANSA Queensland website also has a number of documents developed as part of the monitoring program. Should you wish to tag fish in other parts of the State please make sure you adhere to any relevant Plans.
A pdf version of the document is located below. Remember. As members of the club let Bob and Dave know if you see anything in the document that you think can be improved on and we will work on updating it. The Plan is a working document, so will always be LIVE.
