Nymph under Dry - double your chances

Joe Riley
Those who fish the rivers around Tasmania all enjoy the sight of a black spinner drifting along a riffle disappearing in the slight swirl created by a good sized brown sucking the fly through the surface film of the water.

Curries River Dam Report 12/8/2012

Looks like I am doing the report as Dale has handpassed it on to me! We fished Curries River Dam this arvo with Dale, Trev, & Bailey. We met up with them onsite around lunchtime. It was the first time here for me, but Dale has fished it a few times about 15 years ago and got some nice fish out of it on the fly.

Anyway, we launched the Stacer and headed over to the northern shore and it didn’t take long to get hooked up, we managed four nice brownies up to 3lb and lost another five.

Most fish were caught drifting and casting towards the reeds and fish were caught on Dales hard body “Red nut”, one on a black n gold tee tail & one on a strike pro hard body, we will certainly be going back there! I think we did a good job in such glassy sunny conditions. All fish were in good nick with very nice coloured flesh.

They had been feeding on snail & scud, in fact, Dale and I were amazed at the size of some of the scud found in one fishes gut... they were nearly an inch long.
I Can’t wait to give it a go with softies and hardbodys on a day with some cloud cover and a bit of breeze on top.

Thanks for a great afternoons fishing Dale. (AKA “The Unit.”)
