Flyfishing for Australian Murray Cod

Murray Cod v’s Kaos Cod Flys

Out of desperation, Jason and I organised a floatboat trip onto my local waters. The rivers are currently in a transition period and starting to slowly recover from constant flooding, it had been a long time since we had both held a flyrod and we were keen to gather video footage of our fishing adventures.

It was soon discovered that Jason’s floatboat had somehow developed a hole; still this wouldn’t be enough to deter us. We quickly discovered that our flybox of synthetic fatboys and rattling flys would be of no use today. It was time for the subtle approach, drifting a black zonic under snags had worked before and once again provided success for us.

By having various styles of flys, such as reaction, flashy, subtle and surface, you can turn a quiet day into something special. A tally of 15 healthy cod proves that it pays to adapt to the situation at hand. I hope you enjoy the video clip.                  Nick

    • Jon, They usually vary, most are around 2kms. It is better to fish the water well, than having to rush through them.
