Tiny creeks and sea run trout - Christopher Bassano

Presented from Issue 105, August 2013
Christopher Bassano fishes over 250 days a year. This interview was recorded just before he headed off to fish for Australia in the World Fly Fishing Championships in Norway 14-17 August 2013.

I live on a small stream and at the start of the season I like to go off on a bit of a discovery mission and fish the headwaters of the creeks and rivers I feel an affinity with.

These small rivers include the St Pats, Meander, Forester, Little Forester and others. The further up you go on these rivers the clearer and lower the levels. They are often less affected by the rain and runoff and you get some good opportunities. Get as close to the source as you can and you will find some good dry fly fishing. Don’t limit yourself to those I have mentioned. Most headwaters will hold trout.

Lake Leake 23/3/2014

Mark Tapsell and myself headed to Lake Leake early this morning in search of a contender for today's Pirtek Challenge...I caught three over 54 cm so hopefully I am in with a shot with one of them.
Regardless of that, we landed 8 between us in a little session of around 4 hours. We also lost a couple of others.
These fish are in awesome condition, 4 fish came in at well over 4 pounds and the smallest would have been around 2.5 pounds.
Its never a place where fishing is easy but now and again,...you just get lucky I guess.
 
Regards,
Todd Lambert
