From left – Antony, Des and Paul had a good workout getting started in ‘the art of the fly’. Here they are gearing up for first assault on our stocked rainbow water.

Antony and Paul working the shallows after a rainbow, but wind and stubborn fish meant change of venue after lunch.

Afternoon and evening on Currawong Lakes stalking wild trout saw a lot more action – especially from the fish!

Here Paul is casting to a close-in feeder that has moved literally just metres in front of him (can see the rings).

All in all very exciting, but frustrating for a team of beginners. Final count 1 lost, 1 missed and 2 lined = lots of fun had and converts to the fly made!

With the high water levels, Currawong Lakes looks like being a great series of waters throughout this season – can’t wait for the dry action to start.
