    'Nother First

    Scratched up 3 Murray Cod on the wand over the long weekend down the New England area. All under size 40 - 48cm but fun all the same. Temp was a bit down and they wern't real co-operative.

    Got absolutely done over by a beauty in one hole and lost my best cod fly best cod fly 'cause I already caught 2 fish on it. Done me on 25lb leader. Rolled one in the same hole about 3 hours earlier on the baitcast gear, that was a good fish (5kg +) - probably one in the same animal.

    Well done Great Sportfish the Murray Cod.
    I have take a few on the biggest loudest dahlbergs i could find. What flies did u use?? I took a couple of good ones a few weeks back from a local creek, one sucked down a Dalhberg the other a woolly Bugger with a large foam head.

    Good fishin'

    Good stuff Jack!
    Mulwala is great for surface codding, but most surface caught fish are small.

    Have had sessions there with 20 -30 hits in 3 hours fish to 45 cm.
    During the day, you can get fish over 60 cm from the same spot - just not interested in smaller flies/lures.
    Attached is a pic of a wee cod I caught using a dahlberg in mulwala.

    Got the bug on them greenfish.
    Headin' back down the New England this weekend for another crack at them. Give some dahlbergs a go.

    I'll make sure I get some pics this trip, but I think the camera might be possessed - when I carry it in the pack, I don't seem to do any good.
