Issue #20 Peter Broomhall takes us with him on and adventure into the Julian Lakes in Tasmania and coincidentally, Mick Hall discusses Peters fly creation, the Bruisers Bug in his Fly Talk column. Mick also has a fascinating piece on the history of smelt pattern flies in Chasing Smelters. Trevor Hawkins packs the 4wds, twig rods and hiking boots and heads into the remote scrub around Dartmouth Dam and the upper Murray River in Victoria. We take a look and some fly gear and some new fish finders. Trout Waters looks at a little known NSW high plains gem and we’ve included a few AFN Classics that are worth reading for the first or second time.
