Searching the Snags
After our last successful expedition pursuing the local Cod, Jason was keen to see if our fish were still in the mood. With a repaired boat and a bunch of prototype fly’s requiring testing, it wouldn’t take long before his questions would be answered. From the first shallow hole, we started to accumulate a tally of eager fish, small fish at first, but Jason managed to find a 70cm specimen. His reward for a high risk cast deep into a snag.
After another eleven fish, I’m confident to say that we’re starting to work out the tactics and fly’s required to succeed when targeting Murray Cod on Fly.
Fly choice is the key component and often the fly will draw a response before any movement is applied. We will be working on fly design, materials and weed guard construction in the upcoming posts. Nick
