June 18th Meeting with Charley May


Originally from England, Charley is a biologist by training and a marketer by trade and has been mad about fly fishing since she was young.

She’s been sharing her fishing skills with friends and family for years and in 2017 decided to launch her part-time guiding business - Charley May Fly Fishing. Since then she has inspired scores of people to cast a line for the first time or take their game to the next level. Her clients have included the Governor of Victoria!

Last year Charley returned to the Old Country to sit her Certified Casting Instructor (CCI) examination and celebrate turning 40. Not only did she pass the test with flying colours to become Australia’s eighth female CCI, but she also spent a magical day on two of England’s fabled chalk streams with her dad to celebrate her four decades on earth.

Forget the Test and Itchen. Charley is going to tell us about the Lathkill and Wye Rivers in Derbyshire, and why you need to head to northern England to find gin clear water, dazzling wild brown trout, and romantic landscapes that will stain your soul.

With a heavy dose of nostalgia, Charley will be taking us for a walk down memory lane, sharing her knowledge of the area and rivers, and inspiring us to pack our twig rods and ‘head up north’ next time we’re in the UK.

This will again be a Zoom video presentation, commencing at 8:00 pm.

Please note that some days prior to June 18 Terry Rogers will email us all with detailed instructions on how to log in to see Charley and hear her presentation
