2005 - Stu was commissioned to design and tie flies by an Auckland Real Estate company for the promotion for the selling of some NZ prime real estate life style properties. The fly designed and tied was called the Bendemeer Beauty.
2006- Grub Club started
The Grub Club got started with the help of founder member Gerry who sadly passed away in 2019.
He took two years before he hooked and landed a trout on the Banana fly.
Some years later the grub club member certificates were printed for even more fun, there are now members with the certificate proudly (and rightly so) on their wall all over the word who have managed the ultimate NZ fly fishing challenge.
