FWF134 detail

Issue 134 Sep/Oct 2015 – Freshwater Fishing Australia is packed with all the latest and greatest AFTA tackle, products and lures for the 2015/16 fishing season. Like many anglers who are addicted to chasing goldens, Andrew McGovern is waiting in anticipation for the anticipated hot golden perch bite of spring. He shares some experienced advice to help you strike it rich this golden season. Paul Lynch spends an enormous amount of time searching for Lake Eildons golden submarines as well and his article shouldn’t be missed. Lubin Pfeiffer discovers that big lures aren’t always the answer for big cod. With fish often under a tirade of pressure from anglers, Dean Norbiato lightens his terminal tackle in search of finicky spring perch, and shares the results of going light. Scott Gray, fishes for trout and trophy redfin in the recently recovered Lake Gillear near Warrnambool in Victoria’s west. Peter Morris shares some advice for those looking to tackle some of the many species available in Queensland’s Lake MacDonald. In his fourth and final instalment of Lake Jindabyne in focus, Andrew McGovern delves into the detailed options of fishing around the dam wall and Jindabyne township areas of the lake. Lubin Pfeiffer discusses the finer points of hunting trout in slow flowing streams. Fishing vertical structure for golden perch has long been the domain on vibes and spinnerbaits; however, as Wayne Dubois explains, there’s a more effective lure choice on the market. There’s heaps more content of course, including electronics, fishing gear, motor reviews etc, and all of it finished off with Mick Halls fascinating FlyTalk.
