Fueled by my passion for fly fishing with my fly rod in hand and the great outdoors calling you! I’m fishing in a tight pocket of the river casting large flies at these beautiful marbled colored fish. A season you have planned never goes the way you expect it to and the journey still continues. Tough season and equally tough and stubborn fish, the hunger drives you to boiling point and you still set trip after trip to nut out the mighty cod.
Fly fishing is not limited to the summer months with the right knowledge and approach; you get to enjoy your passion any time of the year. Though you do not always come home with a fish or even get a strike, you are still able to pursue your passion all year long. Make every opportunity into fly fishing season.
Depending on your local climate, it is still possible to make winter a productive time for your fly fishing. Late cold nights on the rivers give you rare opportunities for some winter fishing being surface or sub-surface fly fishing. Seek out different deep pools where fish collect during the low season weather. Fish do not feed with the same regularity, so take multiple flies to try to tempt them in to any strike. Identify pools, logs, weed beds, boulders, under cut banks and any standing and submerged structure that attract Murray cod. Behaviors of cod do change in all seasons and when fly fishing opportunity arrives, you know where to go and how to fish a certain spot.
If you haven’t given this technique much consideration as a productive way to fish for Murray cod at any time during the season you should rethink your prejudices and give it an honest try.
