So far, the early part of the fishing season has been really good and the fish we have been catching have been in great condition. We had a little bit of rain and snow early on which made things a bit harder with high and dirty rivers for a week or so.
During the school holidays I took my younger sister, Charlotte, and taught her how to cast a fly rod. She hooked and landed 2 nice rainbows on nymphs that we had tied together using Dad's vise and materials (cheers Dad!)
I also showed her where to look for trout in small streams and where to cross the river safely.
Dad and I have also explored some new water together which has been great fun!
We landed some nice browns up to 6lb on a mix of nymphs, dries, streamers and soft baits all of which Mark stocks at his shop, Southern Wild.
My favorite streamer has been Dores Mr Glister #6, Nymph #12 Fluro Orange Beaded Hare and Copper, Dry Fly #14 Para Dads Favourite, and my favorite soft plastic is the Black and Gold Berkley T-Tail.
The Back Country Rivers are now open so get ready for some more great fishing options!
See you on the river Tight Lines Louie “The Fish” Macandrew
