Our Kiwi mate, Al Mc, has relocated to Melbourne. He has promised to keep us informed about his various adventures south of the border and has delivered. Here is a report “Four and a Half Rivers in Four Days” – Rubicon, upper-upper Goulburn, Big River and Delatite.
A significant element of the Trout Strategy was to publish report cards on trout waters in NSW. The report cards have recently been uploaded onto the DPI website and are available here. Some interesting observations.
Lyall has reported here on the Ruakituri River near Gisborne. Food for thought – Peter and I have been thinking about trying the North Island and this is very enticing.
Our President, Rod, managed some days in NZ recently. Here he reports on a diverse angling trip with some great results
Our mate Greg currently living in UK has provided an excellent report on a trip into Scotland. A must-read.
The April 2019 High Country trip was originally planned by JQ for ‘the other side of the mountain’ but circumstances got in the way. Fly Fish Australia competitions, Man From Snowy River celebrations, Easter … so much conspired against the original plan. The locale was changed to camping out at 3 Mile Dam, but attendee numbers dwindled (Peter, Ian and I were in NZ so we had a legitimate excuse). In the end a dynamic duo of JQ and (big) Luke stayed in a cottage at Adaminaby and ventured forth into the back country. Their story is below – I remain envious of how well it all went. JQ still refuses to give me the precise location, but it inspires me to look more closely.
