Hi everyone,

Here is a photo from my recent trip to New Zealand :zorro:

This was the biggest brown trout I have ever caught! :zorro:

Check it out!

Later, Glen

this was captured while fly fishing.

the fish was sighted from some distance away and a small nymph (which is a type of fly that imitates an aquatic insect) was cast in front of it and the fish happily came up and grabbed the fly :)

too easy! :P

its not that hard to learn fly fishing but i agree that melbourne is not that great.

though if you have access to a boat you could chase australian salmon on fly...that would be fun!

also you can catch big european carp on fly in some places.

i know, its a bummer eh? speaking of carp, do you know any parks around the melbourne area that have carp in them, i like catching them for fun, besides its doing the council a favour! :th
thanks again,
pj

the best areas for carp are in the west. i believe Lake Modewarre has huge carp but i have never tried for them. there are also carp in the National Water Sports Centre. The address is -

Riverend Rd
Bangholme
VIC, 3175
Australia
Ph: (03) 9772 1001

see attached map. you can fish anywhere on the eastern side of the mornington freeway...its quite a large waterway.

lure fishing is not that great over there....the fish tend to be very spooky and they will run and hide when presented with a clunky lure (a lot of the time).

small flies and light line are much more effective
