    First Fish On Fly!!

    Well done Trouthunter, feels great don't it?I did the same thing (read my thread about 8 down from this one (St. Kilda)).I feel your enthusiasm. I started by joining SAFWAA and went to a 'come try fly fishing' day and now a year on and I've got 3 rods (4,6 and 8wt) and there are dams just around the corner from you literally.As it has been said, you don't have to go to the meeting but you would be missing out on cheap gear and free advice on your passion or just read the threads on the SAFWAA site (They're more forthcoming with locations and advice on technique etc 'cause you're one of the brotherhood of SAFWAA )Spend the money, join the club and I'll see you on a SAFWAA dam sometime

    NEED a pheasant tailfeather!

    Excellent Photos Tony. Thanks for that information Rollcast, I have actually had that (Induced Take) happen to me when I'm slowly lifting the rod for another hem hem Rollcast :whistle: and bingo. Now I know it has a name

    The thing from the river.

    Went for a fish down the Onkaparinga and saw somw rippling water, thought it was a River rat but this came up and sat next to me.Never seen one in the river before. Take a look and let me know if it's a local or what.Sorry for the footage but it was the best I could do at the time.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hR3Ky8LNvI4&edit=ev&feature=uenh

    St. Kilda

    Certainly was scotty.Tried a silver lure on the normal rod but there was weed everywhere and the wind dropped out so I had a go at the fly rod (casting as far as I was, if not further, with the spinner rod)and the second cast Bang!Did a couple of tail walks for me too:)Not had a fish pull line out of my hand before. Was quite exhilarating I must say.
