Went there Monday the 18th, near the bridge behind the football club, nothing around. I do not know where is the best place around there?

That's where I had planned to do the intro samchan.There is some great learning water through there although it fishes much better in the spring.

Welcome aboard :wave2: You may like to post an Intro of yourself on the link below.

I'm sorry but I can't help re: your fly fishing question. As the cooler months are here now I'm not sure if much fly fishing is done? But I am no expert. May I suggest you start a thread in the fly fishing section asking the question on the link below. This may get more attention as opposed to this thread.

As Jim mentioned , being the cooler months , don't expect too much on a dry fly atm. Come spring is the best dry fly fishing time as the fly represents alot of bugs around, and on the surface of the water that time of year.
Although , I have hooked a few smallish trout on a dry fly recently on dusk. A wet fly would be more of the go this time of year if your were going to fly fish during the day imo, just don't expect too much or anything big atm.
If your on the east side of melbourne and don't mind travelling up to 3hours at the most, I may be able to put you onto a few good rivers for fly fishing.
Cheers , Rick.

Where are you located, how far are you willing to travel?
The Goulburn river around Alexandra and Eildon is good this time of the year, the water flow is a lot more stable and the insects are active during the day, so you should get some nice dry fly action. As winter kicks in you're better off fishing the lakes and reservoir around the Ballarat district for smelting trout. Another good winter option are the 3 lakes near Kyneton, Malmsbury, Lauriston and Upper Colliban.
