The July 18th Meeting with Rene Vaz

The July 18th Meeting with Rene Vaz

The guest speaker at our July meeting will be Rene Vaz.

Some of us will be familiar with Rene through his many articles in New Zealand and Australian fly-fishing magazines, and his appearance as a top angler in a number of fly-fishing DVDs.

Since the age of 19 Rene has been highly involved (obsessed!) in the fly fishing and tackle industry. He is a past New Zealand Fly Fishing Champion and New Zealand team member, is an FFF and STANIC

Fly Casting Instructor holds a master’s degree with Honours in Fisheries Biology and Management and has worked for and advised a number of tackle companies around the globe.

Rene lives and breathes fly fishing. He started Manic Tackle Project in 2008 in his garage at home, and after some years of hard work, late nights, glasses of wine, and some great customers he has successfully grown the company into Australasia’s largest and most respected fly-fishing equipment distributor

Rene will speak at the VFFA meeting on Thursday, July 18, about fly selection, and the latest gear from Simms, Scott Fly Rods, Lamson Waterworks reels, Airflo lines, and more.

Mark it in your diary – Thursday, July 18, at the Kelvin Club.
