nice - aside from them thar flies.
larger than blackflies here, i'd imagine.

love flyfishing - granted last time i had my feet in the water was 5 years ago.

on the roaring fork, outside of aspen, co.
a gent i was working with hired a guide for me for 1/2 day. caught more trout in those few hours than all my time fishing prior.

thats me in the waders and shades + 60 pounds. :shock: :shock: :shock:
just started to bring in a pig of a brown.
caught some rainbows later upstream where the river was only 10 feet wide standing on some boulders.
rainbows are fast! much different than the browns...

Hi bmike,

Yep them thar flies are very bad this year.

great photo I love trout fishing too,I also had years of fly fishing with no luck and I spent lots of money setting myself up too, it help if you are with someone who knows what they are doing my walking/fishing partner Dave is an American scientist that lives here in OZ, I recon he has PhD in trout fishing.

I am going trout fishing in the wilds of New Zealand in a month time. Watch this movie

Amazing that even though we are continents apart we still all have the same hobbies, even more how similar the trout look and the fact that we both have the same type of trout. Are your trout native to Oz or are were they introduced at one point?

All of our fishing trout are introduced mostly from North America, we do have some very small native trout left in some small streams our high country where the larger trout have not been introduced.

Amazing that even though we are continents apart we still all have the same hobbies,


Bushwalking and fishing are very popular here but stove making is very rare I only know of 2 others in OZ.

Good thing Whellers hut was'nt touched by the fires. Looks like the ideal place to camp.

Photos are great Tony.

One of the best investments a person who likes to fish can make, is to hire a guide for the first day out on unfamiliar waters.

The video is good for winter viewing, thanks Tony.
