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.

Huntsmans Lake 24/2/2013

Trev and I headed out to the Huntsman for a couple of hours today; the water was very calm and 22 degrees. We found a few fish moving in a wind lane but they were very hard work. The lake is very low.
On the way home we saw this sign selling goats, the paddocks they were in are very dry, but as it was pouring with rain up there, they may get a feed soon.
