The August Annual Dinner with Peter Morse
This year’s annual dinner is on Friday, August 24, and will be held at the Kelvin Club. The cost is again $70 for members and their guests, and an invitation is included in Fly Lines and all members with email addresses.
Our guest speaker for the evening is Peter Morse, who is well-known to many of us.
Peter is a highly regarded guide, writer, and casting instructor who specializes in saltwater fly fishing.
He grew up in Fiji where from an early age he fished from the family boat trolling handlines for mackerel, trevally, tuna and coral trout. His father and his grandfather were fly fishermen, and Peter has fly fished since the early ‘70s in freshwater and in saltwater. He has written extensively on the sport for magazines and has written three books.
Peter is well known by fly fishers in Australia through the Wildfish series, but has also taught fly casting for several decades. He is a Sage Ambassador and RIO Ambassador as well as a Certified Master Casting instructor with the International Federation of Fly Fishers. He conducts fly casting clinics all over
the country from novice level through to training other potential instructors.
Without prejudice, he chases with fly tackle whatever swims and has landed over 300 species on fly tackle.
He has fished around the world from the jungles of Brazil to the flats of Mexico and Florida, throughout the South Pacific, to the chalk streams of southern England. His favorite 10 species are barramundi, bonefish, permit, trout, billfish, trevally, Saratoga, blue bastards, queenfish and Murray cod.
In 2017 Peter was awarded the Fly Fishers International Mel Krieger Instructors Award.
Peter is also a superb photographer, and his presentation at the annual dinner will no doubt be illustrated with stunning images of fabulous fish caught in exotic locations.
So come along on August 24 and enjoy a wonderful evening with great friends and a superb guest speaker.
