Club Representatives

Some of our members represent their club at Tasmanian fly fishing Championships. A number of our club members have also represented Australia at World, Commonwealth and Oceania Championships.

Because of the clubs proximity to the great lakes and rivers of central north Tasmania, our members have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience by acting as competition controllers at some of these events.

 

Trevor Berne

Trevor

He taught himself the basics of fly fishing as a youngster with a few tips and guidance from Lindsay Cameron the owner of a local hardware store and tackle outlet. Lindsay was an avid fisherman himself.

Trevor fished a few state, and one national championship and decided that competition fishing was not for him.

He was a founding committee member of Fly Fish Australia - Tasmanian Chapter and continued his involvement until 2009. He was one of the main organizers of state championships for a number of years. Trevor is a founding member of Quamby Fly Fishers Club.

Trevor and Eve Berne are both life members of the Quamby Fly Fishers Club.

To consolidate his growing success Grant finished 3rd In the Australian  Fly Fishing Championship in 2010.
