Nice catch aybe.
Went out during the day chasing yellas a few weeks ago. Had no luck on them but did pick up a 73cm and my first meter cod. Was in a hole that you may have fished with Ben one day

About time you got one Ash- might be able to get out in a couple of weeks - hopefully.


Nice By-catch Keegs - 1metre cod is a cracking fish

Cheers

Ben

The cod fishermen amongst us might be interested in my latest blog, which looks at how shifting baselines affect our perceptions of how "healthy" fisheries are. It spends a fair bit of time looking historical murray cod populations. Anyway, hopefully its of interest. http://flickandflyjournal.com/2015/06/1 ... fisheries/

Just read this Hamish. Really good work.

I remember discussing with some locals out on the Darling once about how the fishing had been stuffed. I asked them how they knew the fishing was no good. They told me that in the old days they would camp by the river and put out 50 set lines and expect to get close to 50 fish when they came back. Now they were lucky to get any.

Not bright enough to put two and two together...

A little movie from the weekend. Water was still a bit high, fast and dirty and my home-made special was the only fly I could tempt them on despite trying much brighter patterns in the chocolate coloured water.

Wanted to see if you can catch cod in the winter.

Spent a nearly full day hiking up and down the river. Water much dirtier than usual, but the cod were on fire.

My best outing yet. 7 landed, 3 lost including what I think was my biggest hooked ever (yes I knew I should have changed the chaffed leader after the first 3 fish, but was being lazy).

Unlike in the warmer months, most hits were very soft - just a light twitch of the line rather than the usual heart-stopping thump. It felt like they'd just nipped the tail of the fly, but had actually eaten it.

Beautiful warm day, but had to get down into the Speedos 3 times to extract snagged flies and the water was absolutely icy.
