They say size isn’t everything, and it’s certainly true when it comes to this very rewarding form of fly-fishing.
Over the years, I’ve become addicted to the charms of catching pretty wild brownies, admiring their butter coloured bellies and bright red spots. Most fish weigh-in under the half pound mark, but on occasions you’ll winkle out a much larger specimen from a deep hole. Sport tends to be off the surface, which proves very exciting and it certainly keeps your responses in check. In my opinion, this is a very underrated style of fly-fishing; which is highly addictive.
We’ll travel light to cover as much water as possible; waving a wand-like 7-8ft rod among overgrown trees and backside vegetation. Around every corner there’s a new challenge and an opportunity to try and accurately flick a fly to ever willing wild fish – they certainly keep you busy! This will test the skills of the most experienced angler, and I’ll guarantee that you’ll want more. There’s something special about outwitting a truly wild creature among such beautiful surroundings.
With some steep, slippery banks and difficult access points, you’ll need a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy the session.
