  17. Since my trip to NZ I have been very keen to give fly fishing a go. I bought myself a nice little fly reel over there, as I'm itching to catch a bass on a fly as it seems like such a great way to catch them. All I need now is to get a rod, and from all of the posts I have read asking about this, I know that this is quite an important part of fly fishing. I don't want to spend too much money on the rod but I also don't want to get a bad quality one that will put me off fly fishing I will probably only want to spend a maximum of $100 on a rod (if that's possible to get a good one for that price!) I will also need to buy fly line and I'm not sure what brand or type. I will probably be just using it in the places that I use beetle spins and jackall type lures so I guess that will mean I will need sinking line as I will want to drag the fly along the bottom? I have read a lot of posts regarding all of this sort of info, but I would just like to make sure that I'm getting the right stuff before I spend a lot of money. Thanks, James

  22. G'day All, It's raining "cats & dogs", and I am working on a Saturday. In order to reduce the monotony, I thought I would share my latest purchase with you all. I only came on to the fishing scene about four years ago, and after a bit of time, and thanks to fishing with a few sweetwater fanatics, I soon became addicted to lure-fishing in the fresh. Anyway, I recently decided to augment the baitcasters with a fly outfit. I was initially against it, as another form of fishing addiction would see me most likely bankrupt , but then my will crumbled, and thus, I have ordered the following, to arrive next week. 1 x KCX 8wt reel, and 1 x Wild Fish 8wt 9ft rod. I have assorted flies also coming, with the main target being Murray/Mary Cod, Golden Perch, Saratoga and Bass. I have next to no idea on how to fly-fish, with youtube being my only exposure, but hey, you have to start somewhere right? I am pretty pumped about this ha ha ha, with the only dampner being this incessant rain (pardon the pun). Anyway, just thought I would share this with you all. Any comments/pointers would be most welcome ha ha ha!!! Cheers, Ryan.
  23. Just a quick reminder that this month's meeting is on Thursday 18th April. Proceedings will kick off at 18:30 or 6:30pm Venue as always is the Wilston-Grange AFC End of Babarra St, Stafford QLD 4030 The Tuna are on the move, so this week it’s tying Tuna flies. After years of painstaking research Tony Ham has perfected the ultimate polarbean fly. To get an insight into how he came up with it and how to tie the “Hambean†make sure you come along armed with vise and pink fur. On a quick side note, in a meeting last a group of us voted last week to become incorporated and insured. So that means fishing trips for a change and much more. Details will be more forthcoming at the May meeting. Hope to see many of you there. http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&t=h&msa=0&msid=201698493380322226612.000492e1667c60e58b852&ll=-27.415281,153.019874&spn=0.012991,0.022724&z=16
  24. Just a quick reminder that this month's meeting is on Thursday 21st March. Proceedings will kick off at 18:30 or 6:30pm Venue as always is the Wilston-Grange AFC End of Babarra St, Stafford QLD 4030 Greg Jackson will again be attending to give us some tips on how to effectively cast at short range and also tips and techniques for accuracy casting. If anyone listened to the last episode of The Trout Diaries by Derek Grzelewski ; Stu Tripney said one of the main reasons for success fishing the South Island for trout was “accuracyâ€. Hope to see many of you there. http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&t=h&msa=0&msid=201698493380322226612.000492e1667c60e58b852&ll=-27.415281,153.019874&spn=0.012991,0.022724&z=16
  25. Hi All I'm just starting out in the fly world and i'm trying to ID my first fly rod. I purchased it 2nd hand on a bit of a whim and can't seem to find out any info...it was cheap enough so i thought it was worth the gamble at the time however i am thinking it might be way to long for what i need. Any help would be great ... i have included some pics of the info on the rod but to date i can't work out what brand it is. thanks very much matt
