July FOTM - The bloodworm

Hi all. Andre was supposed to put up July's fly of the month, but looks like he's got busy. I've stepped up to cover for him this month. Apologies for the rough tie, as it was a last minute job to get something up before the end of July. Which way do you think it should swim? Please see attached pic...

Re: Barmah Forest Virus

I get those symptoms every time I get back from Exmouth. Withdrawal symptoms from lack of fishing. :D
All jokes aside, hope you have a quick recovery Mike.

Re: What's in your box?

Walking and estuary boxes. The blue c&f box are flies with 'light eyes.' Lots of charlies, coz they work. Bms flies also have a place in my box. Sometimes, fish just zone in on bms style flies. Termite/flying ant patterns are specific to late summer hatches. The black c&f box are flies loaded with m...

Re: What's in your box?

This is my local boat box. Will do everything from herring, skippy, and bream, to salmon, snapper, and Samson fish. Still a work in progress. There's still space to fill in this box. :lol:

Re: What's in your box?

This is my 'go north' boating fly box. I've whittled it down to 1 box. It covers everything I need for a couple of weeks up north, except for billfish flies. I do carry a bag of spares. These are an insurance policy in case the fishing is really good. There's not many times that I have had to resort...

Re: What's in your box?

This is probably not that straight forward a question to answer Matt. This is especially so if you tie your own flies, and like to experiment. In every fly box, there are the proven and tried and trusted flies. There will also always be a handful of experimental flies. Finally, there are flies that ...
