We would like to make you aware that we have recently posted a report by Stewart Dick on our website that reports on the recent Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships held in Canada. Congratulations to team 'Australia Gold' who won the team bronze medal at this event. We would also like to congratulate team 'Australia Green' as we know both Australian teams worked together closely as a group, and the success belongs to all Australian angers who attended the event, not just the gold team members. 

Fly Fish Australia Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been successful in its bid to host the World Fly Fishing Championships in 2019.

The bid voted on by the world members of FIPS Mouche in Setubal Portugal on April 15th was unanimously supported by some 30 member countries.
Tasmania will be the host state for the event which is planned for November of 2019 and to be based at the Country Club Tasmania in Launceston.
The competition which will be fished on the lakes and rivers of Tasmania will attract some 28-30 angling teams each representing their country and along with other international visitors accompanying the teams will represent a significant boost to the state’s tourism industry.
The actual competition spans 4 days and all fish will be caught and released unharmed.

Bosnia 2015 Final Report

It has been a week now since the end of the world championships in Bosnia and Herzegovina. To say that the entire Australian team is disappointed with the end result would be an understatement. There was not a lot of conversation in the mini van on the way to Zagreb as we were all pondering what went wrong. I have a few thoughts that I will share with you now.

Bosnia Report 7

Gutted! What a day we have had. The competition is over and the results are in. Spain has won the gold, USA the silver and Bosnia the Broze. I can't remember the last time the Czechs, French and Italians all missed out on a medal. It tells you something about the draw and the fishing. That is not to take anything away from those who did well, but you can't catch what is not in front of you.
Individually, a Polish competitor has won, someone from Montenegro was second and USA third. Again, none of the favoured countries in the top three. Amazing.
Enough about them and more about us!
