Rod Mackenzie, a diehard lure angler by reputation, takes up flyfishing for Murray cod and explains how he ‘bumbled’ along before he finally had some success. This is a great read for anybody taking up flyfishing for any species of fish, not just cod.
Peter Broomhall shares his obvious passion for Tassie Twig Waters in this informative and pictorially impressive article, while Lubin Pfeiffer gives us the lowdown on flyfishing Lake Fyans from a boat. In conjunction with Lubin’s article we also explore the other trout lakes of the stunning Halls Gap region and then head down to Tassie to take a look at two lesser-fished small waters in the centre of the island. Pine Tier Lagoon to the north west of Bronte Park, and Pump Pond just south of Tarraleah are two ‘off the radar’ waters that Trevor Hawkins likes to fish, especially early in the season, and reckons both are worth a look if you’re after something different from the nearby larger waters on your next trip to the region.
There’s a large spread on sunglasses for anglers by Bill Classon, a motor review of a nice little 2.5 Four stroke for your loch style dinghy, and other reviews of gear hitting the market. We’ve also included a piece on Australia’s first Trout Cod fishery in Victoria as a ‘prod’ to get some fly anglers out there and see what they can do on these beautiful looking fish.
And as usual, to top it all off, Mick Halls has done a major piece on the history of Australian beetle patterns.
