Goulburn River

Fly Fishing, now this is a little different and Paul was totally new to this style of fishing it’s a whole world of its own, one must know the life cycle of the insect world.

To use a dry Fly or wet Fly? 

Put simple a Wet fly imitates insect larva that swim around in the rivers, streams or lakes so the fly we would use will sink below the water surface and drifted in the water to fool the Trout into eating it, it can also be a bait fish or streamer fly which is worked back after casting out, this method can work all year.

Dry fly is the same insect hatching out and taking to the skys, most insect sit on the water surface drying out there wings before taking off and this is when the Trout strike so we need a fly that will sit on the water surface and float along fooling the Trout into sucking it off the surface, this method works better when you can spot fish rising to feed on the surface, Spring time and warm mornings or afternoons are prime.

Fly outfits used 5 to a 7 weight will suit well for this style of fishing.
