Tidal Talk August 2001

August is birthday month at my place. My wife Helen and two of our three children all raise the same question at the same time - what to get them as gifts.  A new fly rod for Helen? a nice reel for Sam? and a new fly line for Winston?

That was when Greg Double and I started working together  to help manage and improve the recreational fishery.  So...in eight years, what have we achieved apart from the "odd grey hair" becoming the odd black one?

When you have finished for the day, why not have a brag about the ones that didn't get away! Send Mike an article on your fishing (Click here for contact details), and we'll get it published here. Have fun fishing - tasfish.com

Curries River Dam 22/10/2012

Went to Curries River Dam for 9am Sunday at the Dam wall.  I was using Chunky Cheese power bait and caught this beauty in 15 mins.  The weather was quite windy so fly fishing was very difficult.  But if you were a fly fisher, then today would have been great.  Fish were rising until 10:30am.  Then nothing.

Kept trying till 3pm, then the weather turned, so left for home.
All the best
Bill
