Great read guys, I too am starting to fish small streams and am taking aboard all this advice so many thanks! If I can offer any tips from my limited experience it would be don’t be put off by the faster flowing water, I have found fish don’t have too much time to think and study a fly in faster water as they don’t want to miss out on a possible meal. Faster water near a possible lie seems to be consistent for me.
UPDATE: Cheers for all the advice! I went down to the same creek and again no luck tried to put as much of the advice in to practice as i could but the trip was cut short by a lack of tippet (my bad) and went home because I'd already cut off the fly before I realised i wasn't able to put another on. This time i went from about 5:00pm to 6:30pm and to my surprise saw no fish (or insects on the water). I do think this is a very good creek but i was wondering if anyone knows of any other trout streams in the area (I'm based in Ballarat so anything within an hour and a half would be preferable)?
