Flyfishing for Australian Murray Cod

Storm Dodgers

Unknown water and sketchy weather treated us with a few surprises on our latest adventure in the search for Murray Cod, from portages in skinny water to thunderstorms, we faced it all, and still found fish in some pretty ordinary conditions.

The fish were fussy and preferred small flies, in particular a beaten-up cod snack dubbed “black death”. Surface fishing was slow but John and Craig found fish using tightly spun deer hair bugs.

The waters held quality fish and no doubt there were plenty of metre fish holding up along the larger pools, but we all agreed the smaller boulder and willow lined sections had an abundance of cod eager to eat our flies.   Nick
