Re: Fish and snakes beside the Yarra

Good work, I can't believe how overgrown it is from when I frequented it years ago, cheers davo There are some open sections - and looks like the council or someone has been along recently dragging out and cutting up some of the bigger trees that had fallen in.

Was out at Woori Yallock.
Water was running fast but was fairly clear, for the Yarra.

Re: Yarra Glen

Well done Mate. Sounds like a good session was had.
With this warm weather and reduced water flow, the Yarra in the Yarra Valley is producing really well at present.

first reddie on SP

Had a quick session on the Yarra last night and gave SP's a go again. 15 mins in and managed a hookup - a little reddie but still first fish on a SP. :banana: Had two others for the night but dropped both, suspect I didn't have the SP sitting quite right on the jig head. But was nice to have some su...

nylon waders or neoprene waders?

I am considering getting myself a pair of waders - wondering what people's thoughts are on the differences between - nylon waders or neoprene waders?
I'd be using them along the Yarra - Worri Yallock and above.
