about us

A social group of dedicated fly fishers who are passionate about fly fishing in the tropical north of Australia and equally as passionate about the close camaraderie this sport brings. This passion and dedication led to the creation of the NT Flyfishers Social Mob blog site; an interactive and creative outlet where everyone can share our wonderful fly fishing adventures and link into the “after fishing” social events we enjoy in this incredible part of the world.

Inaugural club meeting of the 'NT Flyfishers' held

Recently there was held the inaugural club meeting of the 'NT Fly Fishers', on the Wednesday 9th April.
17 in attendance plus 12 apologies (everyone of those apologies either going to or coming from fly fishing trips we hope!!!)
The get together was held at the Palmerston Golf club on schnitzel night - so most enjoyed a great meal as well

The steering committee looked at the pros and cons of forming a club from 5:30pm
And presented their findings to those in attendance at 6:30pm for a vote

It was then a unanimous vote to form the club from those attending
All looking keenly forward to starting off the new club
With the need for plenty of communication being of prominent discussion

On that point all agreed to send a huge thanks and much kudos to Roger and Cathie for the Social Mob blog site and Facebook page that has a kept us all excited and informed on Darwin region fly fishing and associated fisheries information.

In a months time the steering committee will present an outline and costings of a club structure and club committee requirements, hoped for competition details and potential sponsorship etc

Meetings will be on the 2nd Wednesday of each month - so that's the 13th April for the next one
but note it will not be at the golf club due to expansion construction at the golf club house at that time, so look out for info and email for those details as it becomes available. hoepfully back at the club house for May's meeting,

The Palmerston golf club will most likely be the location for future meetings with its well lit putting green right next to the eating area that will be great for pre-meeting casting practice

A special thanks to the steering committee for all their work so far.
