  1. Unforgettable Day

    Sweet thanks for that. Roughly where I was headed any way lol!
  2. Unforgettable Day

    Nice result. If you don’t mind me asking could you message me the area I’m looking to chase a few landbased on fly in the morning. Cheers

    As far as I’m know there’s no bass in the Dilly! Yes it’s an eastern watershed but it’s flow is technically impeded by Warragamba Dam. You may find a few trout in the side creeks if you hike downstream or kayak to 500 acre flat. But it’s generally considered a winter trout fishery when they run to spawn
  4. Zippo of the stones. ..

    Fished the stones myself this morning threw the surf candies on the 9 weight for a couple big pike. No salmon or kings! Switched to the float amd cabbage amd got my bag of luderick! The old mainstay! 3 of us got our bag each. They are about in numbers
  5. Kings at Pittwater

    Oldfella I turn 43 this year and I got taught the art of luderick fishing that way on the rocks. You learnt there was etiquette get in the line work the drift. Don’t come down to a ledge tossing lead over floats (really frowned on). Like you I try to tell younger folk and newcomers the art of luderick fishing on the stones and how to work a drift in line so all get fish! Some won’t listen! Different age and ethics back in the day! Still I try to impart my knowledge of ledges when not to be on them and when to be. It’s unfortunate some people are too arrogant to listen and end up in the drink. As you said the three warnings system made sure you never made that mistake again. Hence why were still here! Oh and by the way I got snuck into the saloon bar underage.....
  6. Kings at Pittwater

    Cheers once more I’ll definately let you know how we go!
  7. Kings at Pittwater

    Thanks for that but I’ve got the 9 weight ready to go and I’m looking for kings landbased on fly! Any recommendations if you could?

    Oldfella, good stuff mate. Dad was tight lipped about the blackfish. Me less so as I want the art to continue and I have had many a message amd have been happy to send people on the right direction. Cheers for your post I may head up to Rowland Park soon and have a go for them in the flats with the fly! cheers
  9. The luderick are now well and truly into their spring spawn and yes they head out into Botany Bay and nearby headlands. Note: if you have no experience on the rocks the Kurnell and surrounding ledges can be very unforgiving in any decent swell.
  10. Carp on fly

    There's a huge carping on fly community in Sydney the latest issue of Flylife has a great article. Loads of pages on Facebook to check out. My mate is one of the fun carp anglers on fly in Sydney. Its about the presentation and the sink rate of your fly. Unlike trout carp have poor sight so you need to be in the zone for them. Common trout patterns such as Wooly buggers, bead head nymphs and even some dries will take carp. A size 10 hare and copper brass (not tungsten). Was head or a pink wooly bugger in a run will nail feeding fish. Any worm fly pattern, the San Juan comes to mind will work. Carp on fly is becoming huge as it allows a wily fish to be targeted on the fly. It's very rewarding. A good six weight medium fast action rod and floating weight forward line will do the job. Leaders in the 9-12 ft range tapered in say 6-8lb breaking strain will handle most carp if played out. Message me if you would like some links to Facebook pages. cheers Royce
  11. Back into blackfish

    I should have had two in the bag straight off Andrew.....good to catch-up again mate. I'll remind you bout your net skills next trip. Don't think I missed one of yours with the net though. Thanks for another good day out.
  12. Blue Mountains Trout

    Nice good to see a run up there. May have to check out one of the other watersheds with easier access.
  13. Fly fishing in sydney

    Hi Therescloads of different places and species or target everything from bread and butter to pelagics. It's going to depend on your rod weight and line type as to what you will target mate. I run two saltwater outfits a 6 weight with a floating line for the blackfish bream etc amd have sink tip polyleaders for targeting flathead. I rum a 9 weight with both floatimg and intermediate for my kings and salmon. Let us all know your setup so we can be of more help. Royce
  14. Braidwood area trout fishing

    The Mongarlowe definatlely holds fish its twig water. Your on the edge of the Monaro mate there's better streams the headwaters of the Badja are worth a look. Pm me if you want some details
  15. Help with Sydney Harbour, Parramatta river..

    If you are into catch and release the Parramatta Ruver can fire for anything from kings and salmon to Mulloway, bream, flathead and luderick. Work the tide start at Goat island and work your way up. If you like chasing the surface feeds on the salmon amd kings at the right time of year you can have a ball following the schools from bay to bay as they chase the bait. Usually around late summer. Personally if I caught a legal kingfish at Gladesville I'd eat it. They're on the move constantly and not hanging around like a bream or flathead which I'd avoid eating. Enjoy
