View Full Version : New swoffer/fwoffer

New member here, NSW northern rivers region. Hmmm, fwoffer - is that a word? Like SaltWater (O) FlyFishER, only freshwater. Feel free to use it whenever you like :). May be a good way to distinguish freshwater fly fishing for native species from the more traditional "fly angling", which always connotes trout for me and which I don't do much these days after moving north many years ago. #

Also do a lot of light-line batifishing in estuaries for bream, whiting, etc. Most enjoyable fishing trips always involve remote locations - always seem to be more/bigger fish there! - and often multi-day hikes to get away from the crowds. It also makes it easier to avoid smart comments like "no trout out there, mate". ::)

Hope to catch up with some of you out on the water soon.

Welcome to Ausfish Martin. The fun is in the learning so once you figure out how to pilot your way around this forum and what all the smilies mean you can get into some serious posting. ;) Have fun and happy fishing!!!!
