Happy Days on Great Lake - Fly Fishing in the Waves

Jim Allen
It is now well over a decade since Peter Wilson of the Great Lake Hotel, now the Central Highlands Lodge discovered the ‘glowing sharks’ in the late afternoon on the Great Lake while he took some time off from pub duties. Today a dedicated band of fly fishers watch the sky carefully every morning in the highlands hoping for a stiff northerly breeze and a cobalt blue sky.  

Midging trout – Great Lake

Craig Rist
Great Lake MidgingJim Schofield is a good friend of mine. His first impression of Great Lake used to be of a large barren unattractive lake that had no appeal to him at all. That was, until he was shown the view from out in the middle of the lake in the early hours of the morning.

Huntsman Lake 13-02-2010

Hi all, Just got back from and impromptu trip to the Huntsman with my family a couple of mates and their families.
What a fantastic looking water this is, they definitely got this one right when they established it.

Cramps Bay February 7th 2010

Left home with my eldest daughter (Demi) at 4 am this morning.
 
Half way up Poatina Hill we were met by a fellow running down the road toward us and frantically waving his arms, as we pulled up he told us that a Log Truck had broken down on a blind bend just up from us, if he hadn't of told us, there would be a fair chance we would have run smack bang up its clacker!!.

Arthurs Lake Report January 2010 Number 2

Selwyn and myself went to Arthurs Lakes on Saturday. We left home late after waiting for the weather to settle. I made the decision to make it only a day trip as the forecast was lousy.
We arrived at the Pumphouse ramp around 1:00pm, to see plenty of trailers in the car park. We  thought this looks good, the wind was out of the north around 5-10 knots and overcast with sunny patches and a small chop to the water.

Fly fishing for sharks in Great Lake

Arthurs Lake Report January 2010

Hi members,
Just got back from having two nights in the club van, it was fantastic, nice weather, not much wind.
No fish from shore fishing. We tried everything as well ......worms, grubs, spinners, soft plastics, even fish guts...... but not even a bite.

We did get some good tips from the locals.

Boundary Bay January 2010

Had a bit of an impromptu trip to Great Lake last night with fellow club members Jim and Virginia, we left the boats at home and had an enjoyable night around the wood heater, under the stars " satellite watching" as that was about all there was to do.

Woods Lake Report January 2010

I wish Mick had sent the no wind from Arthurs down the road to Woods as it was wild there today- I should have left the rod at home and brought my kite. Really gusty and swirly breeze most of the day, the met bureau weathermen got it wrong on the cloud as that wasnt there either !
