Christopher Bassano fishes over 250 days a year. This interview was recorded just before he headed off to fish for Australia in the World Fly Fishing Championships in Norway 14-17 August 2013.
I live on a small stream and at the start of the season I like to go off on a bit of a discovery mission and fish the headwaters of the creeks and rivers I feel an affinity with.
These small rivers include the St Pats, Meander, Forester, Little Forester and others. The further up you go on these rivers the clearer and lower the levels. They are often less affected by the rain and runoff and you get some good opportunities. Get as close to the source as you can and you will find some good dry fly fishing. Don’t limit yourself to those I have mentioned. Most headwaters will hold trout.Read more ...
Your fishing time is precious! Now you can catch more fish by using an ‘Auto-retract’ cord holder and eliminate the annoying tangles of cord on the deck of your boat when using lure retrievers.
The auto retract cord holder stores your lure retriever cord neatly and safely and keeps your boat deck free of loose coils, thereby avoiding tangles or tripping over cord.
Black sides with white accents in immaculate condition. Used for trout fishing, bream tournaments, recreational use and skiing. No money spared on this boat and everything in perfect working order. Click here for Brouchure

(Guide To Buying & Setting Up Your Boat For Fishing)
New edition from boating journalist Jeff Webster, is a 3rd Edition of his popular title, Fitting Out For Bay & Coastal Fishing. This 132 page glossy publication is a comprehensive guide to buying a new boat and setting it up for fishing. Experienced anglers may know how to rig up their boats for fishing, but if you’re not quite sure where to put that rod holder, how to set up your outriggers, or what size live bait tank you might need, then you’ll want to grab a copy of this first-rate magazine.
The existing Shimano Saros threadline series has been re-built from the ground up, with a stylish new appearance and a heap of extra features.
Looking especially smart in a gunsmoke grey, black and metallic finish, the FA series covers all the popular small to medium reel sizes — 1000, 2500, 3000 and 4000. The new XGT7 graphite frame, rotor and sideplate cuts down weight while maintaining strength, and we have X-Ship for increased gearing efficiency and power, delivered via a zinc DC gear and a hardened brass pinion for longevity and light-touch handle rotation.

There are several things we look for in our early season trout waters. It is still winter and cold, so some of the things to consider are: Altitude as this dictates the water temperature and therefore feeding activity. Food for the fish. Availability of trout food is generally dictated by the quantity and quality of weed beds.
Quantity of fish.
Three waters which I believe fit all three requirements are:Read more ...
