    It’s a cold wet dreary day in Hobart, what we would call dreich in Scots.  It’s not much better in the central highlands and Eastern Tiers, rivers are running hard and dirty.  Postie has just delivered FlyLife 108 – the day is sorted.



    Just had a flick through.

    What an amazing image of the whitebait feeder – would have to be one of the best shots in FL. Well done Peter!

    The Eucumbene Shortcast was interesting = always wondered where it came from.

    Some good reading ahead.


    Mark Cloutier

    Agree with that Tocs. That is an incredible picture.



    Another vote for Peter Broomhalls Whitebait feeder as Flylife pic of the year …just stunning , and the article was tops too .





    Another vote for that whitebait feeder photo, awesome shot. Tells the whole story with one image.

    I know it probably irks some (another brown trout) but that cover shot is a ripper. Mountains in the background, towering pines, clear water and a very happy angler, wader less, on a perfect blue sky day holding perhaps the most beautiful fish I’ve seen. Opening day in 2 weeks time, thanks for the gee-up guys, I’m pumped!

    I’ve been a bit lax, but really wanted to give DA’s article the time and attention it deserved.
    What a gift this article is.
    David’s attention to detail, knowledge and experience provide a quality base and surely is a must read for anyone looking for something new and navigating the cacophony of opinion out there.
    Loved the systematic approach used to draw out the conclusion arrived at.

    What a task!
