Wild weather - Wild fishing

'With some parts of Queensland under flood we can only hope that all are safe and well'    Jarrod Day

I remember back when I was a young tacker and for some reason I can remember spending more time on the water than on the shore due to weather conditions.

These days’s I am totally perplexed as to what on earth is happening around the country. In one state we have uncontrollable fires burning thousands of hectares of forest devastating trout inhabited rivers; farmland and livelihoods while up the coast, tornados, floods and wind so strong that you could blown off your feet that are ravaging the land.

These elements appear to becoming much more frequent each year and while I’m not one for believing in superstition, are Nostradamus’s predictions right?

Although the fires in Victoria have destroyed thousands of hectares of land, anglers are still getting out for a spot of fishing at times. -  Jarrod Day  
Despite the mess and devastation that is currently occurring, anglers from all areas are still managing to get into the action and while I am amazed that they can, I guess you just have to get on with life and make the most of a bad situation. At the end of the day, is there anything else that can take you to another place, I think not!

While we try to spend as much time on the water as possible, the team from have also dealt with the bushfire threat, floods, wind and rain and managed to take a little time to venture out on their weekly mission to put together another magical line up of feature articles.

Jarrod Day takes a step back outlining the importance of correctly rigging your baits for better success and takes the time to explain how to rig bait, the correct rigs to use and for what species different baits can be used on.

Lee Break looks at the difference between fishing drains and snags in hope of finding fish. In the northern parts of Australia, drains and snags are a good place to put in a cast as fish will often be milling around waiting for an easy meal, Lee puts in a few casts to reveal some very impressive fish and explains just how easy this tactic really is.
