Wellington Flyfisher’s Club is one of the largest fly fishing clubs in New Zealand and was established in 1984. Our membership currently varies between 160 and 180. Tight Lines, the monthly newsletter outlines all upcoming events and other articles of interest. Club activites include invited speakers at monthly meetings; onstream days where members can fish local waters with an experienced angler; club trips further afield; activities for juniors; tuition in flyfishing, casting and fly tying; as well as maintaining the Capital Trout Centre – a 40m pond stocked with rainbow trout where junior anglers and other groups can experience flyfishing.
Being the Capital City of New Zealand, Wellington attracts a wide variety of people, some for only a short time. Although members are lost to the club each year because they become employed elsewhere, many continue to maintain their subscription and contact with the club, including overseas residents.
