Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?

Been a while.. Been a tad busy.. been fishing though…

With a long break in between fish o qualifiers it was time to get a few Maver tickets booked. As well as this we have just started a spring league on Viaduct. This is a great league and with 55 fishing makes for nice matches.. especially when the weather is now better and the fish munching. » » Read More…



A Red Letter day at Viaduct

Ever had one of those days when most things have gone right..no matter what you do? Well I had one of those this last weekend at the popular Viaduct fishery during an MFS/open spread over Campbell and Cary lakes. The day started well when I drew the favoured area on Cary and one of the favoured pegs, 86 to be exact. I had the pleasure of Alex Murray to my right on 85 and another angler on peg 88 to my left. Looking at the peg I had lots of open water to target and I could see several battle cruises some 6 inches below the surface idling along in their own good time enjoying the sun. So a dobbing rig would definitely be the order of the day. This is set up on 4ft of 0.21mm Vertex line straight through to a size 4 tubertini 175 hook with a tiny FD200 float that requires just 2 x no8 shot to lock it in place but. No weak links on this rig as it was matched to a powerful 2.8mm hollo elastic. » » Read More…
