My name is Les Hawkins and I live on the border of two states (New South Wales and Victoria) in a city named Wodonga, my address being 7 Highland Crescent West Wodonga Victoria 3690. Phone 02 60597891 (or 612 60597891from overseas)
I have been flyfishing for over 50 years and am a life member of our local flyfishing club called Greenwells Fly Fishing Club.
I am the Fly Tying officer for Greenwells Club.
I taught fly fishing at the Adult Continuing Education Centre for 25 years.
I have had four books on flyfishing published.
I prefer fly fishing for trout although I have enjoyed salt water fly fishing many times. I have also fished in England, Scotland and New Zealand.
We are fortunate to have ample trout streams in our district, rivers such as Mitta Mitta, Kiewa, Narieul within an hour and the fabulous rivers of the Snowy Mountains three hours away.
I was Secretary of the peak fishing organisation in Australia for 9 years (Recfish Australia) and many times president of the Australian Freshwater Fishermens Assembly.
I still fish whenever possible and enjoy good health and vitality at age 82.
