Freshwater Fishing Australia #166 May/Jun

In this issue, #166 of Freshwater Fishing Australia Magazine, Andy McGovern outlines his success using lures on big impoundment cod while fishing from shore. Cairn Curran Reservoir in Victoria is a brilliant fishery that provides land-based anglers plenty of opportunity and reward as Kelsi Gull, explains. Rod Mackenzie discusses his voyage along the path to find the perfect rod – not the perfect Rod Mackenzie, but the perfect fishing rod. Colby Lesko, discusses his approach to sight casting to Lake Proserpine’s barra in the weed, the most enthralling way to target these monsters in his opinion. The South Alligator River is a wonderful fishing destination filled with all the barra fishing options an angler will ever need. Fast reels for fast fish, right? Perhaps not explains Chris Cotterill who delves into the reasons why fast-paced reels are a great choice for chasing Aussie native fish. The remote Western Lakes area of Tasmania is a truly wild and amazing place for anglers as Casey Pfeiffer explains. Healthy native fisheries and the right flows go hand in hand, as Dr Zeb Tonkin from the Arthur Rylah Institute for Environmental Research (ARI) reports. The Vision of The Australian Trout Foundation Vic (ATF) is “A healthy sustainable wild trout fishery for all Victorians”, and its mission is “To protect, build and promote Australia’s trout fishery”. Flat batteries are never fun, and Bill Classon outlines how to go close to insulate yourself from those flat battery blues!
Read all of the above and far more, including the latest gear, reviews and in-depth columns in this latest issue.
