Sweet Water Cod
It’s been awhile since we’ve put in the effort to reach “sweet water”. To get there it involves a backache, sweat and socks full of burrs. We really wouldn’t have it any other way, knowing when the river is reached we’re going to have a good day.
What a day we had, with an estimated 15 Murray Cod. Once again the fly that produced was a pink/black combination Mega Dobson, tied on a 5/0 Owner spinner bait hook. I also put the new Kaos 10wt Extreme Fly reel to the test. The reel easily handled the knocks and bumps that invariably happen when thundering down rapids.
We found the submerged granite boulders to be the prime areas to target during the bright daylight hours. We would have loved to fish top water poppers on sweet water but unfortunately time restraints restricted us to fish sub surface flies only. If you’re serious about your cod fishing, why not lace up your hiking boots and go find your very own sweet water. Nick
