raised of £15,000 target by 7 supporters

    Weʼve raised £230 to fund the Northern Ireland team's travel costs to enter the 19th Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships to be held in New Zealand, March 2020

    Funded on Friday, 28th February 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Since first entering the Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships in Tasmania for the first time in 2012, the Northern Ireland Team have achieved notable success.

    Third place out of sixteen teams in 2012 (Tasmania) and 2014 (Devon) and having individual runners up on both occasions and in 2016 (Canada) we achieved fourth place.

    The 2018 Championship were held in Northern Ireland with the TAFI Northern Ireland team taking Team Gold and Brian Kerr taking individual Gold. A great team achievement.

    As you can see we are well up in the rankings in this competition but the cost personally to each of us has been significant so now we have established Northern Ireland on the Commonwealth Fly Fishing stage, we are now asking the people of Northern Ireland or elsewhere to help fund us and get behind us, so we can defend our GOLD status in New Zealand in March 2020.

    Every little helps. So come on Norn Iron, support your Commonwealth Team!
