 Managed 6 trout from Harvey Dam on Monday. Hoping to get back down over the weekend. Another few weeks of decent weather and it'll be time to head to the Blackwood and try my luck there.

ill be heading down manjimup/pemberton way in a couple of weeks to try my luck in a few spots. better off waiting till the weather worms up and then the flying ants come out in the late arvo. best thing ever casting at a rising trout.

i grew up around that area and have been fishing it for a long time, to be honest the best way to catch trout down there is with a little spin flickey.

yer i only fly fish in the fresh water for trout with dry flys. the visual take of the fly is the best part about it, for me anyway.

Bear,

you did alright.. we went down with the fly club and apart from 1 guy everyone else struggled including a few of the fish magnets! 6 fish is remarkable effort!

first time ive fished in fresh water.. cant say I got overally excited about it.. but fishing is fishing.. im thinking of heading down again in a week or so!

yea Matt ..water was real dark ..I hit the rivers between a few storms .. fish were on the chew Big Time and no crowd to get my incredibly accurate ear catching back cast into :)
Bright fly's were the only option.

I am waiting for the weather

Mon, 2013-09-23 18:30

I am waiting for the weather to settle down then the wand will get a work out. Off to Manjimup on 29th for 5 days with fly gear and 2 - 6 weight outfits. Planning on floating around on Big Brook Dam for a couple of days testing out some techniques and soft plastics.Heard that the rivers down South are flowing well but very coloured up so will check them out when I get there.

Hi Crezz ( and other readers

Tue, 2013-09-24 20:35

Hi Crezz ( and other readers ) - I enjoy the peace and quiet at Big Brook floating around on my kayak targeting Redfin and Trout with vibes and soft plastics.Yes there was a number of Trout floating around last season due to whatever but I have caught some lunker Reddies even on low water - my avatar is 2 Reddies caught there on Atomic paddle tails the best one nudged 2 kilo's. My job is full of noise and distractions but the sound of silience is special for me and the fish are a bonus. Anyone else on this site who fish down Manji or Pemby ?

i know what you mean redfinman, i get the same kicks exploring the bush around that area. i put my boots and chainsaw pants on and then tackle the blackberry ridden water ways looking for un fished water. i get more snags in the bush than i do in the water:-)
