    Gday, I am an old luderick fisherman as a boy in the 70’s and beyond. Berley was important for some spots, the majority actually.

    I have fly fished for Trout and Bream etc since the 80’s, and have recently picked up some weed flies.

    Do you Luderick fly guys berley (I am talking rivers – not ocean rocks) with sand/weed mixture?

    Thanks

    have done but situation dependant.
    Mostly locate feeding fish and fish those, however if they are not in a feeding mood (or maybe mode?) then encouragement works.

    I have not used the sand weed mixture but only a weed scatter and never a lot of it.

    No never have too as long as you have a good pair of polarised glasses and spot the fish. We catch heaps in the rivers by just casting upstream and slow strips. Good luck great sports fish. Shannon.

    Had a ball on the luderick on the weekend – must have got over 20 on fly

    initially at bottom of tide the cabbage weed brigade were berleying and getting them one after the other and we were not getting a touch on the fly but then as the tide turned and started coming in we were going shot for shot – double hook-ups and a lot of fun
    mate got his first fly caught fish – a good old luderick on weed fly
    not what one would imagine but he was stoked to be on the board
    aaaah – another dough thrower corrupted !

    I gave blackfish on the fly a crack the other morning and came up trumps. I think I might get hooked on this. Sight fishing, crystal clear water over sand flats with weed beds…it ticks all the boxes. I also christened my trendy new glass rod lol.
