This is a group for all women, children, men and families who may be interested in fly fishing events (weekend and mid-week)

Whether you are interested to learn to cast, learn to fly fish, learn to tie flies or simply enjoy a day of fishing or weekends away fishing & socialising we are the (eastern suburbs) Melbourne club for enjoying outdoor adventures in the natural environment of the rivers and lakes of Victoria and beyond. (see website: Yarra Valley Fly Fishers)

We offer a full program of fly fishing activities throughout the year ranging from our regular

·  Sunday casting practice (every Sunday)

·  Sunday fly casting courses (8 weeks, 2-3 times per year); beginner, intermediate & advanced levels

·  Fly tying classes, (every Wednesday evening)

·  Guest speakers and demonstrations

·  Fly equipment advice and discounted prices

·  Stream craft & etymology, and;

·  Midweek and monthly fishing weekends

A unique feature of our Sundays at the club is our “open to anyone” fly casting practice sessions at our clubhouse at Lilydale Lake, Lilydale. Come, enjoy and relax in the beautiful setting of Lilydale Lake with its bushland setting, lawns and lake as well as family fun facilities.

Don’t worry if you don’t have any experience or equipment. We can provide equipment and you learn the skills and gain experience from participating.

This Meetup is a portal to our club activities. It advertises selected fly-fishing trips and events which we think would appeal to people that might be interested to be introduced to the craft of fly fishing: men, women and children. To participate in advertised activities come to our club rooms Sundays – 10.00 am-12.00 pm or Wednesday evenings from 8.00 pm to talk fly-fishing experiences with the experts or just RSVP to one of our activities (make a note of the contact person) and turn up at the designated place at the designated time. 

We are strategically located in the Lilydale Lake Community Room. The club-room is located is in the Bailey Room and the address is Lilydale Lake Community Rooms, Swansea Rd, VIC 3140. (Melway 38, G7).

The club suits all levels of fly fishing: fresh & salt water and fly tying experiences – you don’t have to be a beginner

More benefit comes from the club beyond the events - our services also include practical training (on fishing events), advice (& supply of) on fly fishing gear (rods, reels, lines flies, accessories & clothing etc.) and guest speakers, professional demonstrations, plus educational & ecological activities.

Our other resources include a wonderful collection of books and DVDs in our club library, plus fishing reports from members’ trips describing thousands of fishing trips undertaken by the club.

Yarra Fly Fishers is incorporated in Victoria as a not-for-profit association
