If the Swampy happens to be low in Autumn you could be in for a treat even though the flies are small. Its  back to size #18 and #20.  

Gentlemen hours are here again with Australia's highest mountains blocking the low Autumn sun.  Technical fishing begins. 15ft leaders, 2ft tippet, light breaking strain and small hooks. Investing in a soft tip rod will stop you striking too hard.   Bloody tailrace.  

Oh! I forgot 45ft casts.   Small nymphs to match the small Blue Wing Olives, Sparkle Midge and Smut Caddis will tend to keep the fish rising.

  • Best Practice Tip:   A drift boat trip with catch and release fishing and a warm single malt.
