Flyfishing for Australian Murray Cod

Cold Weather Cod

Thinking about giving flyfishing for Murray Cod a go? Winter is the perfect time to get all your tackle together and build up the fly collection.  Perhaps you could work on getting some casting tuition, working it all out on the battle field can cause a lot of unnecessary frustration.  Although it’s still possible to successfully target Cod during the colder months, I’ve found that there tends to be a lot of casting in between fish and I’ve also developed a bad habit of accidently falling in the river.  Knowing that our fishing adventure opportunities will dwindle over the next few months, Jason and I hit the rivers with a vengeance.   As usual we start the day with a bit of bantering, leading to a debate on who’s going to nail that elusive one metre fish.  How obsessed are we? We’ve even worked on camera poses and photo angles for when it does eventuate.  Nearing the end of the day, Jason had his chance with one of the mystical river monsters.  There was none of the usual hollering or yelling that happens when fighting smaller fish, Jason knew he was connected to something special.  We were both gutted when the barbless hook pulled on that big horse.                                              Nick
