  1. Hi Geoff Good on you for doing the walk in. So which river did you end up fishing? I've done a reasonable amount of walking in Kanangra NP but never fished it. I recall seeing some enormous trout in some of the side creeks of the Kowmung back in the 90s. Has anyone fished the Kowmung recently (say the last 10 years) Would it be worth taking a rod in once the area is reopened after the fires. I've read reports that carp have taken over the lower part. Also read someone who preferred the Cox and Jenolan was putting chicken wire across the Kowmung to redirect the spawn run (maybe
  2. JonD ... Its amazing the type of country you can access with a humble handline. The more I get into fishing the more I think bushwalking and fishing are a win-win. When out looking for fishing spots you end up visiting some really cool places you would never of thought of as a bushwalker. And as a walker you are much more comfortable exploring harder to get to areas which have way less fishing pressure. This has been good for me chasing cod and trout. Waza ... I bet those climbers would have got way more scared if they went down your descent route. It might have seemed a bit weird that t
  3. Hey Joel My kids have caught heaps of fish on cheap combos. My daughter was gutted when I broke her pink rod when I got impatient trying to get a soft plastic off a snag. From my experience the two most important things are; 1) Don't let the reel get immersed in salt water ... it will seize up real quick 2) Replace the line with a reasonable quality mono. The cheap line combos come with will be crap in terms of memory and breaking strain. If you have already had a few tangles and have cut line off you will need to replace it anyway ... your casting distance will be diminish
  4. Hi guys, I've been lurking a while and learnt a fair bit on this site. I've particularly enjoyed reading about the rock fishing adventures of Waza's youth. Back when I lived in Sydney in the 90's I did a bit of climbing on the sea cliffs and remember being horrified at some of the fisherman's descents we used to access some climbs. Fast forward 25 years and I have taken up fishing after my 5 year old got interested. I've never done any rock fishing but have often thought about what nutters those Sydney rock fishos must have been. I've also thought about whether or not people fished some o

  6. Hey Fishlearner, This is my first post here. I started fishing about 3 years ago when my kids got interested (blame Jeremy Wade). We have had a lot of fun since. I'd recommend going out without your kids and having a play around with different rigs and techniques. This will give you confidence in both your skills and fishing spots that will make trips with your children more successful. Being a relative noob I'm a bit apprehensive about giving you technical fishing advice but can give you a few tips on what worked for me. Firstly depending on where you live fishing for carp and redd
