ACT Fly Fishers is a Canberra based fly fishing club catering for the needs of freshwater and saltwater flyfishers. Meetings are held at the Canberra Deakin Football Club, Grose Street, Deakin, commencing at 7:30 PM on the first and third Thursday of each month. Fly tying nights are held on the fourth Thursday of each month.
Visitors are most welcome and you can find out about membership here.
The ACT Fly Fishers objectives are to:
- Encourage the art of angling with an artificial fly
- Protect trout and other waters
- Maintain an interest in the stocking and care of trout waters
- Foster and encourage the spirit of sportsmanship in fly fishing
- Promote social intercourse among fly fishers
ACT Fly Fishers regularly features high profile visiting anglers and our own experienced members as guest speakers. We focus on sharing the skills of the more experienced fly fishers in the club with those who are less experienced.
