Southern Library

Members,

A new tab has been added to the members only part of the website. This provides a list of all DVDs and Books that are available from the Club’s library. Remember that all library items are loaned to members free of charge as part of your membership.

Please see Colin McMillan in the club rooms to grab your book/DVD and add to your knowledge and enjoyment of fly fishing.

Vale Muz Wilson

The members of Southern Fly Fishers were saddened to learn of the passing of the legendary Muz Wilson.

Muz’s involvement and contribution to the sport of fly fishing will be missed by all. However his legacy will be his great fly tying pattens that all of us fish around the world.

We extend our sincere condolences to family.
