Nice. When I think of Aus and FF I think saltwater. A quick look at the Snowy Mountains shows some nice water.

Yes. I think the brown trout looks much nicer as a youngster.

Yes we have some great water in the Snowies and surrounding area's. I'm lucky where I live near Canberra, we have only a 2 hour drive to both the snowies and the coast, so I get the best of both worlds. But really I'm a trout fisherman at heart.

What do you fish for in the salt?
post #95 of 513
Plenty of species depending where you are but mainly flathead, bream and whiting for me. Up north in QLD/NT where it's much more tropical then bonefish, permit and other pelagic species such as Giant Trevally are very popular.

Do you get a steelhead run or other anadromous fish?

Nope the salmonid species we get here are sadly very limited to rainbows and brown trout mainly. There are brookies and atlantic salmon stocked by the hatchery here, but they are mostly just stocked in to 1 lake (lake jindabyne) The hatchery salmon are land locked so there is no natural recruitment. The main stocked species are rainbows though, with both major lakes in the snowies getting between 50-100k fingerling per year, but the brownies seem to breed naturally a lot better.

Tasmania is really the premier trout waters in Australia, with some great river and excellent polaroiding lakes. Then there is always New Zealand only a 3 hour flight from here, that's a whole other level of awesomeness.

Lefty,

if New Zealand is of interest, this is one of my favorite films.


I'll try and post up some pics of Roscoe area from last few years.

Yeah I have the Source Tasmania, great DVD. Even better is one of there newer films, Hatch. WE have a big travelling fly film festival here called RISE film festival, and I met Nick Reygaert who made all of them at this years, very nice guy. He also used to film a lot of the trout bums stuff but his newer stuff is a lot better IMO. I can never get used to the manic filming sequences on trout bums. He has one coming out next year called predator which they showed a bit of at this years festival. Fishing for lots of big fish, stuff like Barramundi, Samson and the like, all stuff that bends a 12 weight to the corks!

Lefty those Hank Patterson vids are fantastic. I seem to remember they were done for free to raise money for cancer or something.
