It’s springtime, and that means its time for a stroll around the lakes!!! The weather over the past couple of weeks has been amazing and the fish know it too! there have been plenty of very healthy browns and rainbows cruising the edges. Well presented smaller nymphs, a stealthy approach, and patience will be the keys to a successful outing. Although the fish are in close , they are still quite wary of anything that might not look quite right. so you might want to put on your ninja suit and approach with caution. As the weather continues to warm and the bugs start hatching more frequently, the fish will become a little more interested in feeding and less concerned about their surroundings. The beauty of sight fishing on the lakes at this time of the year is that you don’t have to be a great distance caster as the fish will generally be no more than 10 to 20 feet away, so its a good idea to practice your short game before you head out!!!
Things in the shop are starting to feel like fishing season again! With plenty of new stock from Loop, Sage, Scott, Simms, and Reddington just to name a few. Over the coming days I will endeavour to get the products up on the website for all to see! We have one of the largest selection of freshwater flies in Australia with flies from Manictackleprojects, Stus Superior flies, Mick Hall flies, as well as the usual range from Pisces! If you can’t find the fly that you’re looking for then we will try our hardest to track it down or maybe even tie some up for you!
