  1. It will cast better and increase your catch rate. It also makes it easier to unhook the fish for a better release. Been doing it to my freshwater hardbodies and really wish I had started using single hooks years ago. And you can change them back to trebles quickly and easily if you want.

  2. Hope you are well mate and keep catching some good size fish. Been crook myself for too long but getting better and going for lazy bait fishing up the Warren Reservoir for good results. Hopefully get back to chasing trout this weekend. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  3. Put single hooks on it with extra split rings. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  4. We did the same using hessian bags. Big plastic pot with filtered holes at the bottom with heaps of soggy cardboard and newspaper to start with earthy loam on top of that mixed with some low PH potting soil. Mushroom compost on top with the kitchen scraps thrown in underneath a moist canvas bag. Works brilliant for tiger worms and they are a good size compared to the stuff most places sell. I recommend you chop your pumpkin up into little pieces so it composts quicker and helps your worms feed easier. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  5. I like redfin. Don't like Karen. Redfin are pigs. Have caught 6" redfin on 10" scrubworms and they were hooked deep. There is a Karen at Wynn Vale dam that I call the goose lady. She likes to feed the ducks and geese right next to where we are fishing wherever we are. Gets angry when the birds she is feeding get tangled up in our lines but hates it even more when we cuddle the ducks and safely remove the line and let them go. I think she wants to cuddle the ducks too but when she tries to they bite her. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  6. If they can open Happy Valley Reservoir can they also open Little Para Reservoir? Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  7. Best thing to see when it happens so rarely. When I was a little fella living at Barmera I remember seeing big carp jumping out of the water about sunset. I know now that big carp will eat the smallest insect. Works for fly fishing but when bait fishing I still believe big worms will catch the biggest fish. Love my scrubworms.

  8. Super high tides. Would have been good for apex predators like mulloway. Are the schools of rat kingfish cruising around again this year? Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  9. Got waders and waterproof clothes but the wind could be a problem. Will be fishing low in the valley so hopefully it will only be heavy flow to worry about. Rain doesn't bother me too much and apparently it is better for catching trout. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  10. Torrens River will be flowing hard after the heavy rainfall predicted over the next few days. Checking out the spots above Kangaroo Creek Reservoir you recommended but I think SA Water has claimed them and they are now off limits. Looking at Mt Pleasant at the source of the Torrens downstream on Google Earth but everything above Gumeracha Weir is off limits. Thinking of buying some trout fingerlings and stocking some dams if my mates let me. Good place to live up here in One Tree Hill but we get nervous in bushfire season after the Sampson Flat fire a few years ago. Sent from my SM-J120Z
  11. Thanks for the warning mate. Keen to see what this does for the creeks, streams and dams by Sunday. All I can think about is trout. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  12. I know St Kilda is a bit of a hike but if I wanted a salmon on fly I would seriously consider pulling on the waders and heading out on a high tide at the crack of dawn. Low wind would be an advantage but at the end of the breakwater you can fish both sides and cast with it. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  13. One of my mates was telling me today how he caught salmon at St Kilda on a sinking fly cast in the middle of the school. Got me thinking about trying it myself in a few weeks when they really get hungry. Long walk out for them at St Kilda. And I have best results with little Spanyid Raiders and weedless soft plastic minnows so would most likely stick with those. But keen to get one on fly also. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  14. Hey those feet look like the Largemouth Bass I have hanging on my wall that sings and dances when I tickle its nuts.[emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  15. Really appreciate that mate. Fished bait up the Warren for a donut yesterday. Expected it coz it is very cold and the natives shut down this time of year. Fished Springbank today for a donut on bait but also put the waders on and fly casted a few wooly buggers at some carp and dropped a nice fish. Still learning fly fishing. Will be back up Corkscrew Rd next weekend with some spinners and small hardbodies to hopefully pin my first trout. Got some good rainfall predicted on Wednesday and Thursday and keen to see how it flows by Saturday. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
