Freshwater Fishing Australia - Issue #145
Issue 145 of Freshwater Fishing Australia is once again bursting at the seams with great tips; techniques and locations for all those dedicated freshwater anglers out there.
Winter is one of those times of year that can either excite you as an angler because its often the best time to target big trout, or do the complete opposite and plunder you into a lonely place counting down the days to the next season. Andrew McGovern explains why it should excite you and how to use winter to your fishing advantage. Rod Mackenzie looks to the surface water in search of monster Murray cod. Needing a trout fix in the depths of winter means searching lakes for feeding trout. Trevor Hawkins discusses how you can search and catch more fish by concentrating on where these winter feeders may be congregating. Adam Royter continues his very informative advanced luring for trout series by taking a closer look at lures.
Barramundi aren’t the first species that spring to mind when anglers are deciding on a fish species to target in winter; however, as Roderick Walmsley explains, they can be just the ticket to snap you out of your winter slumber and stretch your arms. Anna Bellette recounts her first few casts into the world of flyfishing. Noal Kuhl takes his yak to the rural heartlands of the Darling Downs. Simon Cardone discusses fishing for big Murray cod between locks 1 and 11 on the lower Murray River, and Frank Prokop looks at the data to explain why fishing in inclement weather may just well pay higher dividends than fishing the calm.
Of course, there’s also stacks of columns and reviews that you’ve come to expect and last but not least, Mick Hall’s ever popular Flytalk.
