View Full Version : Thredbo River last weekend

Hey guys and girls,

I spend the weekend in Thredbo fly fishing, the river was fishing excellently with plenty of fish and some great sized ones.

I fished with attractor and stimulator patterns and found that the fly didn't really make a difference as the fish would take just about anything. The most important thing was targeting the right area's and getting a good drift.

Here's a pic of the largets Brown I caught. Approx 45-50 cm. Didn't have a tape measure at the time but I measured my hands afterwards.

G-day Peter, Great shot. I dont fly fish but when I see fish like that I wonder if I should give it a go. Good excuse to travel somewhere new to fish.

Hey Pete, nice fish mate.
Thats some fantastic country down there! Look forward to another trip down there to fish as I havnt tried Thredbo yet.
Good to see something different on this site from time to time.

Nice fish Pete.
Brings back memories of my trips to the Thredbo, ducking in and around the Tea tree's. Walking and stalking from Crackenback to Waist Point.
Beautiful part of the world, mountain fresh air, Browns and Rainbows.
Party hard at the Brumby Bar, then up for the early.
Gosh......wish I was there! :'(
