Early Morning Cod
What a difference a week can make when Cod fishing. A rising barometer and stable weather conditons can bring Native Murray Cod to the boil, from the first moment I hit the water, things looked good. It was amazing to see how narrow water can hold such good fish, ones that were also super eager to smash a well presented popper. This coupled to the fact I had put in the hard yards to reach the river at first light, it would ensure the highest chance of success. The fly of choice was an upgraded 8/0 Bendy Roller Popper. The fly was designed to be thrown and skip cast into the most overgrown sections of the rivers. When it quietened down on the surface I then switched to sub surface, the fly was a mega Dobson fly tied on a super sharp Owner 5/0 hook. I’ll be covering the tying instruction of both these flies plus weedgaurd construction very soon. Nick.
