Flyfishing and fly tying is now one of my main passions

  I thought Google and other forums were you passion.  I have seen maybe 4 threads about fishing with flys.  And hundreds of post about other forums and Minelab bashing.  Good to see you get your prioritys straight Doug.  Eating fish is good.  I have been fishing with flies and antique lures for many years.  Mostly large mouth bass here in the SW USA.  Will not use live bait anymore, too easy.  Lot of folks catch and release, but I eat every fish I catch.

  No trout around here to speak off.  But large mouth bass taste almost as good.  I use rubber worms most of the time.  The purple ones with the glitter that smell like licorice.

Soft plastics are used extensively here for  many freshwater and salt water species. We have bass here as well :the Australian bass and a similar looking species, the Estuary perch.Both have now been bred in some hatcheries and are being stocked in some waters.

Good for you & your FLYfishing hobby Doug!  good luck

(Flyfishing sounds better than Fry-fishing... corrected above) As an ethnic I LOVE fish ...  fried, smoked, raw, pickled etc.  But the skill or exercise in outwitting a fish with lures etc is unappealing, though no doubt challenging and an interesting hobby to many. I prefer the end result .. a fish on a plate. (Grilled flounder is nice and in general I prefer saltwater fish to freshwater.)

Have you had any success with Murray Cod? I know that they are now restocked in some lakes.  Its a fish I would like to taste / eat one day but have not seen it available commercially.

As far as freshwater fish go I eat smoked, commercially farm-raised trout (from the La Trobe River) fairly frequently. It a healthy way to enjoy them, good value and I would never throw them back.

 I have not tried to catch Murray cod on the fly but  some anglers have specialized in this art.

Thanks Doug ... great fish eh?

.... and I hear these native Cod are good eating too, if they are not thrown back as most are.
They and trout struggle to compete with the introduced carp it seems.
The Howqua was a favourite place to visit once when friend lived and fished near there ...  once a graet trout stream but less so now ... it now suffers from pest carp, right up to its upper reaches I was recently told.

I assume you catch brown trout as well as rainbows? I have ony eaten browns 2-3 times. Which do you prefer and why?

 Cod are only good eating in the smaller sizes as the big one's can be very fatty.For tout  i don't notice any difference in eating qualities between rainbow and brown. The best eating one's  I find are those with an orange flesh due to eating  foods containing Beta carotene's (gives carrots their colour). Any trout that  have only just be liberated from the hatchery tend to be poor eating with soft flesh and often no flavor..

Hi Doug
Flyfishing is not only fishing butt a way off live.
Was a catch and relaese guy for over 40 years with one exeption the trips we made to the big lochs in Ireland
Here we smoked the big browns and had them with breakfest.
For more than a decade I build splitcane rods together with a frind under the name G & G Flyfishing.
Sinds I stopt in 2000, he is stil making the very excluse rods,   
My specialty in the later day"s was flyfishing for pike and carp, the bigger carp is giving me the fun off a livetime
A 20 to 30 pound carp on a flyrod is big fun,
Tight lines and regarts from Holland

Split cane fly rods are making a big comeback (as are silk lines) but are very expensive! The rod maker in the link below has a waiting list of 18 months even although his rods can cost A$2000!

Thanks Larry! A very creative and clever guy in the video! Reminds me of a guy here was catching some huge trout in the Goulburn river here in Victoria on a "fly" whose main  component  came from a rubber thong!

You have some very creative work there Doug that you can take pride in. I have tried making flys for light line saltwater but my creations dont turn out as I want them to. It really appears to be an art form.

 Tying saltwater flies or any flies can be a challenge.I have have tied thousands of flies over the years on hooks down to size 22.What you don't see are the many failures! I may tie  more than a dozen flies of a particular pattern before I am satisfied with the result.Then perhaps another 1 or 2 dozen experimenting with different materials and techniques to try and get the edge over the fish. Lately i am experimenting with glow in the dark flies (charged with a UV light) using phosphorescent  materials. My fly tying is getting more difficult  because I have bi lateral cataracts and arthritis in the hands due probably to my early years in  boxing,taekwondo and other sporting injuries.
