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.

St Helens 10/1/2014

Hi all, Jamie Morehouse and I decided to take our two young blokes to St Helens this morning in search of a few Silver Trevally. We left home at 4 am which was a bit of a shock to them but thanks to Jamie's expert guiding the day was very worthwhile. We landed 17 in a couple of hours with at least 5 over 42 cm in length. Jamie even got "smoked" by two that he couldn't stop.
 Great to see Patrick and Jacob hanging on for grim death as these powerful torpedoes took them around the boat for a couple of laps before tiring and rising to the surface to be netted...great fun!!
 
Regards,
Todd
