Amateur Fishermen's Association of Qld Inc.


A sub committee has been formed and delegated with the task of fact finding in relation to erection of a storage shed, excavating below cottage or raising cottage.

The main objectives here are to provide more  suitable amenities, secure storage for club boat and temporary storage of museum specimens. Extra storage for camping and general gear would also be a bonus. This committee will source all the requirements together with costs so that members can be presented with the facts allowing them to make an educated decision as to which way we go.  

Luck was not too far away when shortly after seagull droppings landed on George’s shoulder he hooked on to the big one at Sandy Cap during the October 2007 Fraser trip. A 16.59 kg (36.5lbs) Tuna which took 2 cans of Carlton Mid and 45 minutes to land.

Well done George.
