  1. Fly casting lessons/help

    I’ll definitely check out John Wilson, I’ll have a look online for some vids. I have one of Lefty Kreh’s dvds at home, I’ll have to re-watch that also. I was actually trying some side casting the other day, felt really awkward, but I’ll stick with it. Watching videos is a good start, but I’d really like someone to actually watch me and tell me my problems and show me how to fix them. The rod I’m using is a 6w Penn XDS. I also have another (cheap fly kit) rod, but that just feels like a wet noodle. Thanks for the tips mate, much appreciated!!
  2. Fly casting lessons/help

    G’day guys. I’ve taken the long wand out the past couple of sessions and I’m getting addicted! Getting my PB Estuary Perch (40cm fork) last Sat morning on fly, and on a homemade popper, really got the bug to bite. Is there anyone in the Cronulla area that could help me out with a few lessons, or just help with some bad habits that I’ve probably learnt by teaching myself? I can throw line ok, but I think I do need some pointers to help me get better. Being in the kayak, sitting so low in the water doesn’t help too much either....If anyone is willing to help me out, feel free to get in touch! Heres a pic of my PB, and the popper that tempted her to bite! Cheers, Adam.
  3. Looking for a fishing mate

    No probs mate. 👍
  4. Looking for a fishing mate

    Hey man. Do you have a kayak? I’m probably gonna head out on Sat morn chasing Bream in Port Hacking. Shoot me a PM if you’re interested. Cheers, Adam.
  5. Sydney drains

    There's one little drain that I've fished that always seems to produce. I think I've told you about it, kinda close to us. If you ask nicely I'll take you there one day! Haha
  6. Wading the Flats - Gunnamatta Bay, Port Hacking.

    Hi mate. Yes, before I got the yak I used to wade up there all the time. Either on the weedbeds or fishing into the drop off. I've caught Bream, Whiting, Flathead, Flounder, Trevally and even rat Kingfish up there.
  7. Wading the Flats - Gunnamatta Bay, Port Hacking.

    Good stuff Joel! I've been up there a couple times lately in the inflatable yak. I got a Solid Whiting last Tuesday in the rain. The Monday before I headed up in the morning, got smashed by some big Bream but failed to get hook ups. I also lost my brand new Tonic sunnies overboard, so if anyone finds them in the weed, let me know...haha!
  8. kurnell boat ramp

    I saw a few pic the other day, looks like there's a lot of sand on the ramp, and the wharf has broken away and washed up down the beach.
  9. Ugly Stik

    Hey John. I have an Ugly stick that I'm trying to sell that would suit kings and Jews. It's a BWS-70A. I've had it in storage for ages, it's never caught a fish. It does, however, need a new tip runner. If you're interested, send me a PM. I'm not sure where you're located, but I'm in Cronulla. Cheers Adam.
  10. Noob in Port Hacking

    Hey mate! What fish are you looking to target? Or you'll be happy with anything? If you have a fish in mind that you'd really like to catch, this would help in tackle selection and spot selection. I live in Cronulla, I could help you out with a few techniques and spots that (sometimes...) work for me. Feel free to send me a PM if you like. Cheers, Adam.
  11. Wanda beach info

    No probs. I was considering heading up the beach myself till I saw the Southerly moving up, and now I have to work anyway.... I just use a running sinker rig with a decent length trace. As for sinker size, depends on the conditions, but something about the size of a grape is fine if there's not much swell. Trace of about 60cm and a size 4 long shank hook.
  12. Wanda beach info

    A Southerly change is hitting during the night, that'll make it hard to fish up there in the morning. If you are still keen to wet a line, I'd suggest trying South Cronulla beach with nippers. Always a chance of Whiting and Bream.
  13. New to fly fishing - Port Hacking

    Sorry mate, I won't be able to make it tomorrow. Hopefully you have a good morning. Next time you're keen to head up, shoot me a PM. We could even organize a Bass on fly morning if you'd be keen for that.
  14. New to fly fishing - Port Hacking

    I might be able to swing Friday morning! I'm not working till the arvo. Hmmm, just checked the tides, it's high in the morning. I usually like to fish the last of the run out, first of the run in. Let me know what your plans are closer to Friday and I'll see how I'm going then. Cheers, Adam.
  15. Dunns swamp

    Golden Perch and Murry Cod are the 2 main targets. Your best bet would be mid/large divers, spinnerbaits, lipless cranks and maybe some plastics and surface lures. There's plenty of rock walls and reed edges to cast at. Just keep casting and changing lures regularly, you'll soon work out a pattern. Even if you don't find fish, it's a beautiful area to paddle around. Good luck! Cheers, Adam.
