Murray Cod in Action!

  1. Nick, Nick, Nick…What more can i say, BLOODY AWESOME mate. The quality of the footage is great and the cod country looks even better and you grunting and groaning sounds cool and in a nice way 🙂 it just shows how much curry they can give you and with the right technique you can pull big fish and land them in a tight river system.

    Just one thing i noticed you strip the fish in not reel your backing on quickly and fight the fish with the reel, why is that ?

    Keep up the good work and theirs more goodies coming your way soon: )

    Cheers Virty

      Virty,
      Once I pull the fish out of the snags, I usually put the flyline back on the flyreel when using barbed hooks. I crimped the barb on your “Zonic” fly and the slightest hesistation or pressure release you can drop fish.
      Note in the video, if you don’t have direct line path contact or forget to strip strike you’l lose fish also.
      Concerning the grunting and groaning, It’s been a long winter and I’m slightly out of “fish fighting” condition! .
      Regards Nick

      G’day Jon
      It was the Macintyre river, but to be honest most of the rivers in the New England hold a good population of Cod.
      Regards Nick.
