Welcome to all local, Australian and overseas visitors to the Darwin Flyrodders Inc web site.Members of our club have been meeting since August 2000 and our club continues to grow from strength to strength. In addition to major planned events, our regular monthly meetings include fly casting tuition, fly tying demonstrations, video nights and guest presenters. If you are a visitor to Darwin or a curious local, we welcome you to come along and attend our meetings.
Mornington Peninsula Fly Fishers Inc. (the club) was incorporated on 9th June 1998. At the time the sport of Flyfishing was undergoing a wave of popularity and as a result, the club's numbers quickly grew and at one stage we had well over 100 financial members.

Through the efforts of an energetic committee and a responsive membership, the club quickly developed its finances and as a result, the club is now extremely well placed in terms of its financial backing. As anticipated, membership fell off after the initial influx and we now have a solid core of financial members with a substantial emphasis on family membership.

Statistically, the club counts family membership as one person only so the actual number of people participating in the club and enjoying the benefits of the club is far greater than the actual number of members recorded. For a fishing club we are fortunate to have a number of active female members and our junior membership is also reasonable.
The Lakeside Fly Fishing Club Inc was established in 1951 by a group of fresh water fly fishing enthusiasts. It is one of the oldest established fly fishing clubs in the Sydney metropolitan area. The Club takes great pride in specialising only in the fresh water version of the sport and concentrates on fishing for trout. We are a small but friendly Club where all members know one another. Lakeside is also known as a teaching Club. We hold regular casting days, fly tying nights and study and talk about other important aspects of fly fishing. Members regularly go out on fishing trips and enjoy the comraderie associated with the sport. Visitors are welcome to attend Club meetings. These are held on the first Wednesday of every month (except January) at 7.30pm at the Lakemba Memorial Services Club, 26 Quigg Street, Lakemba (Cnr the Boulevarde).
