The November 21st Meeting with Cameron McGregor

The November 21st Meeting with Cameron McGregor

Cameron is coming to our November meeting to tell us how to catch Murray cod on flies. Murray cod are undoubtedly our most renowned Australian native species, and fly fishing for cod is growing fast in popularity.

Cameron was practically raised on the rivers’ banks and has fished for Australian natives all his life. He learned to fly fish at the age of 12, and this fuelled an early interest in entomology and fly tying. During his time at university he studied macroinvertebrates and Australian native fish species such as galaxiids. His research interests led him to positions in both New South Wales and Victorian fisheries departments where he researched species such as Murray cod, trout cod and golden perch.

He has also studied brown and rainbow trout. His research and personal interests have allowed him to accumulate an extensive knowledge of Australia’s freshwater ecosystems, particularly in the Murray-Darling Basin.

Cameron is a skilled and experienced angler and instructor with a lot of experience fishing around Australia and abroad. He has a degree in Environmental Management and Ecology from La Trobe University, and is a PFIGA qualified Fishing Guide.

We would encourage all members to join us for a meal beforehand, but PLEASE make a booking for dinner by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 20th, by phoning 0498 254 497 and leaving a message.
