Re: Yarra river this time of year

A lot of factors can influence whether the fish are biting or not. Sometimes a rapid cooling of water temperature, sudden falling of barometric pressure and/or water clarity or the amount of stream flow rates will affect the fish. Sometimes you will need to fish in ways that you don't try too often,...

Re: Hitting Lang Lang!!

It would be good if they ever rebuild the pier at Lang Lang. The original pier was almost derelict by 2004 and was removed in 2007 with vague promises from the government that it would be rebuilt. Like many government promises it has never eventuated. Prior to 2004 Lang Lang pier was a popular spot ...

Re: After six years the trout are back...

Don't know why but tannin stained water always looks mysterious.

It also begs the question; one lump or two?

Re: Noise

Noise and vibration on the bank or in shallow water is readily picked up by fish and will spook them every time.

I'm not so sure that noise or vibration spooks them so much in deep water but I think it's good practice to always keep your noise to a minimum.

Bunyip River Yellowbelly

I'm curious to know if anyone has caught, or even sighted, Yellowbelly in the Bunyip River. For some time now I've heard the occasional rumour of their existence and until this morning was inclined to dismiss the stories. I'm always searching out new waters, very often in unsuspected places, and thi...

Re: Mobility Issues

Thanks guys.

I just re-read my original post. It looks like i came across as being a grumpy ol' bast****d. That wasn't my intention.

I just love my fishing!

Hopefully I'll be giving it another crack tomorrow

Tight lines everyone.

Mobility Issues

I've struggled these last six months or so to be physically mobile, mainly due to my knees being affected by osteoarthritis. It's been a struggle to walk any distance so most of my fishing has been in places which are only a very short walk from my car. Over the last month or so the osteoarthritis h...
