From the publisher
Our landmark 150th issue of Freshwater Fishing Australia Magazine, we have gone back over those 150 issues & looked at freshwater fishing in Australia, the changes of techniques & tackle that have occurred & been written about in this magazine over that time. We note our staff, past & present, contributors & readers, all of whom have in some way contributed to reaching our 150 issues.
The Upper Macquarie River remains a wild river at heart according to Joe Brennan, & he reckons the fishing & history on this iconic river are best experienced from a canoe. Colby Lesko predicts a huge future for Tullaroop Reservoir, with early signs suggesting big trout are on the cards for those that take the time to work out this waterway over the winter period. Nige Webster recounts his relationship with Freshwater Fishing Magazine, & its creator, Bill Classon, & looks back at much has changed in the freshwater fishing scene over the past three decades. Dean Norbiato casts back 30 years & traces the evolution of lures used to lure the mighty Murray cod, our largest freshwater native fish. Braving the icy winds, & cold temperatures of winter in search of freshwater laviathans can test even the keenest of anglers, but the real possibility of encountering huge greenbacks during this time of the year makes it almost impossible to avoid explains Dan Nogare.. Trevor Hawkins gives an overview of the ‘golden’trout waters of the Ballarat region in central Victoria, & makes a case for it being the epicentre of stillwater trout fishing on mainland Australia. Shanks pony or low range 4WD are required to access the middle section of the Eucumbene River between the highway bridge at Kiandra & the Denison camp area to the south, & Trevor Hawkins gives us a taste of this stunning section of river. There’s plenty more of course, including more columns, gear reviews & other content you’ve come to expect & realise from FWF magazine, more in fact than you can poke a fishing rod at!
