Greetings from the WA Murray

Hi everyone,

Iíve just joined up- thanks Ian Sewell!

Iím a Trout flyfishing tragic, but since Iíve been living in North Yunderup on the Murray River in WA, Iíve become interested in catching Bream and other species, particularly on fly.

Iíve discovered theyíre tricky buggers, and a challenge to get them to even consider eating a fly, but Iím starting to get somewhere.

I attended the weigh in of the Breammasters comp on the Murray recently, and caught up with Ian again after many years- good to see you again mate!

It was a tough comp as we had a huge fish kill in the Murray a couple of weeks before and more than 3.5K fish died. I hope they find out the cause and put measures in place to make sure it happens less frequently if they can.

It was inspiring and informative watching the guys and girls fish from their kayaks, and great to hear the info they passed on at the weigh in- they shared so much about where and how they fished I learnt a lot about the River and catching Bream from it just from that alone.

The Breammasters forums are great too, so looking forward to lurking here a lot.

So while Iím saving up for a couple of kayaks, Iíll keep plugging away with the flies I tie and fish from my tinny, which works pretty well.

All the best,

Mike

Hi Mike and welcome to the forums, has been a while since we last caught up but it was good to see you down there, best of luck with the fly they are a tough nut to crack but certainly very rewarding.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the welcome.

One of the Bream I caught recently- on a fly I tied similar to a Muz Wilson fuzzle fish pattern.



I'll be out there again as soon as it stops p#@@ing down around here

I wonder if anyone else saw this new member post and wondered if it was the same trout_bum who had the greatest ever bream master sale of second hand gear a few years back. I reckon those who were here would not forget it.

Exactly what I thought when I seen the name come up .
Still don't think of seen evidence of a better collection of lures.
Welcome to the Forum mate .

Cool

It will be interesting to follow your posts and hopefully pick a few tips up regarding fly fishing, something I am thinking of having a crack at in the future.
Welcome 👍

Thumbs up

Thanks Guys,

No wasn't me selling a lure collection. I've never had a lure collection I have a few hardbodies and soft plastics I've tried, but flyfishing always has more appeal for me, even if the Bream are tough to tempt on a fly.

I'll have to get down to the Collie sometime-how's it fishing atm Collie Yak?
