Despite having a family history of fly fishing, I'm only picking it up myself now, so I'm keen to make up for lost time

John the owner/manager of the Motor Inn (and publican at the pub BTW) is always happy to let you know where it is fishing well. Its a congenial location to set up base camp.
Pub food is great and there are BBQs as well well as full cooking facilities in the spacious apartment.

Thornton Last Weekend of the Month
Friday 24th (8.00pm) - Sunday 25th optional (Noon) March - 2017
The hoppers are hopping, the beetles are flopping and even maybe still some willow grubs are dropping. The waters are flowing and the trout are cruising.
This is a non club-championship YVFF event at Thornton to get away and practice dry-fly, polaroiding, nymphing and quarry-hunting techniques and other specialised techniques.
It's only 1¼ hours from the clubhouse
The more people we get to come, the more there is an opportunity to learn from someone that excels in these techniques. So, spread the word, enlist members and make it happen!!
We have booked two nights at Thornton Caravan Park (Cabin) and I'm interested to hear from people if they are interested in Friday night only, Saturday night only or both nights. All of them are possible – spend a day, spend two on the rivers – your opportunity to take steps forward in your technique(s)
Book your place by adding your name to the Club Trips Notice board or call Andy Elam 0421 089 999 for details or go to: Events for more information and to contact via email
