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.

NT Fly Fishers Club Meeting Wrap Up

Last Wednesday’s meeting was pretty good with 18 members in attendance, and a lot of apologise.   Running through the new NT Fly Fishers Constitution ran pretty smoothly.  A big thank you to Dion who has done a lot of work on this.

Professor David Cook’s presentation on Barramundi breeders and how they move around the rivers and estuaries was really informative.  Even people not associated to the club listened in and had quite a bit to add to the presentation.  Quite funny.  Thank you so much David.

Completion of the Constitution what does this mean moving forwards?

Dion will add the final touches to the NT Fly Fishers Constitution and submit it to the Department of Business.  Once approved the Steering Committee legally have to provide 30 days’ notice to club members calling for nominations for new Committee members and the date for the first AGM.  Taking this into consideration and if all goes well we will be looking at June to form the new Club.  In readiness please start emailing through your nominations now for the following NT Fly Fishers Committee positions…. How exciting!!

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Weigh Master
  • 2 x General Committee

Other Topics

New Club Membership fees to incorporate Palmerston Golf Club Membership.

Fresh and Salt Water Competitions to include IGFA rules and regulations.

Please start emailing new Logo’s ideas for the new club ntflyfishers@gmail.com.  All ideas are most welcome.  Not sure how this will work yet.  But 1 idea was for members to vote for the favourite and send it off to a graphic artist (or whoever).

The winner of the Roggie Dodgie flies is – Canadian Pete

Dion made it known on the Fly Life Blog we are looking at establishing a new Fly Fishing Club in the NT and the feedback and interest from other clubs nationally has been amazing.

Kate has sourced a new projector and screen.  Therefore please start emailing in you brag shots, videos etc to display throughout the meetings.  If you want to organise a guest speaker, chat about a fishing experience please start sending them in to ntflyfishers@gmail.com.  One idea of Kates which is a ripper, use a GoPro to stream a presentation on how to tie flies to display on the projector screen for all members to see.  Bloopers, YouTube clips….

As mentioned near the end of the meeting the Steering Committee has received many requests from Club members to arrange for club outing.  Richard kindly offered to arrange this – I hope I am not dobbed you in here Richard.   If so, please let me know so I can send out an email for someone else to organise a fly fishing gathering.

Next meeting 11th May – mark it in your calendars now – note meetings start times have changed. 
  • 6-7pm Steering Committee
  • 7pm Club Members arrive and the meeting will kick off at 7:30pm  (allowing time to order dinner, get a drink and have a general chit chat)

 Kind Regards,

Janet Watson
