Flyfishing for Australian Murray Cod

Big Fish

During the month of April the temperature begins to change, from here it won’t be long before the Winter chill sets in.   The Willow trees begin to drop their leaves, signifying that the water and air temperatures are falling.   Fishing can often be unpredictable during the colder months, but I’ve found this is the month that the big boys come out to play.  If your willing to put up with a little discomfort and the shorter daylight hours, this could be the month that you could land your P.B  fish.   Since we’re dealing with colder climates, I’d recommend the use of Coldwater flylines from April on, in either a full intermediate or floating/inter sink tip.  Over the past few months Jason and I have upgraded on tippet stength, it’s 30lb Shneider tippet for us from now on.  What we found was happening was that we had so much confidence in our improved snag/weedgaurds, we were starting to fray our standard 20lb tippets from constant casting into vegetation.  Have a look at my latest POV video “Big Fish”  for what what you could experience during the change of the season.                             Nick
