Virtual Tour of our Shop
Valley Fly Fishing Centre is more than just a shop.
It is a destination Guides and Outfitters. While this
sort of store is common in the western states of the
USA, it is a new concept here in Australia. And we are
proud to invite you in for a look at what we do.
it should be noted that the centre is open 365 days
a year. There is always someone here and you can get
flies and advice anytime you are in the area. The
beauty is that when you come into our centre you are
accessing the combined wisdom of three full time trout
guides! David, Geoff and Antony run Australia's longest
running drift boat operation and teach hundreds of people
to cast and fish each year. We give information freely
and only recommend gear that we use ourselves.
first thing you notice when looking at our place is
the unique roof line. The building was designed to blend
in with the surrounding skyline. With mountains on all
sides of the centre the building just melts into the
background. The second most prominent thing to impress
on the eye is all of the water. We have 16 acres of
lakes and waterways all of which are inter-connected
and fed with cool, oxygen rich Goulburn River water.
The centre itself is built right on the edge of a lake
and the rear deck extends out over water. From here
you can watch
trout cruising or test cast a new fly rod in real conditions.
you step inside you will see a vast range of fly fishing
gear. We carry a full compliment of rods from G.Loomis,
Innovator and Scierra and all budgets and styles are
catered for. The beauty of this is that you can test
drive a variety of rods on the water at the rear of
the centre. We have demo rods rigged with Scientific
Anglers reels and lines available. Technical information
is only a request away and we are available for casting
lessons at any time also. If you are looking for a new
rod we suggest that you drop by for a chat and a demonstration.
also carry a stock of waders (both breathable and PVC),
leaders and tippets, floatant, gifts, artwork, polarised
sunglasses, fly reels, fly lines, fly boxes, gadgets,
vests, clothing, hats and everything else that you can
think of. The shop is growing in size by the month and
is open everyday from 9am-5pm. While these are the shop
hours you can usually find one of us here from about
8am although we are gone by 5. Time and tide and
the evening rise wait for no one!
also carry one of the biggest fly ranges in the country.
Again we point out that as guides we know what flies
work and we are also very particular about the quality
as we fish with the same flies that we sell. Many of
the flies on sale were designed by us and you can be
sure that if it is for sale here that is only because
we use them when out fishing or guiding. Most of our
flies are $2.50 which makes them great value.
those of you that tie your own we have an extensive
collection of flytying gear. Hairs, furs, dubbings,
capes, saddles, hooks, tools, vises, yarns, chenille's,
eyes, beadheads, synthetics, the list goes on and on.
For those starting out we sell basic starter kits put
together to suit your budget, from the very basic to
the very expensive and everything in between.
You can also purchase any of these items 24 hours a
day from the Goulburn Valley Fly Fishing Centre's online
sister, The Flyshop (www.theflyshop.com.au).
The Flyshop is Australia's only full online flyshop.
Almost everything that you see on our shelves can be
purchased online via the ANZ Egate system. Secure shopping
from home any time of day, every day of the year.
