Our summer issue #169 of Freshwater Fishing Magazine is packed with an amazing array of articles and content for your holiday season reading.
Andy McGovern rediscovers the challenges and rewards of hiking into remote back country streams chasing wild Australian trout. Lubin Pfeiffer says that confidence is key when it comes to catching big cod regularly in the Murray River. Billy Auldist profiles the under-rated Broken River in northern Victoria. The AFN Pro Staff journeys up Victoria’s longest trout stream. Colby Lesko looks at ways to fish the Murray River for big cod between Yarrawonga and Echuca.
Fishing tackle continues to improve and evolve at a rapid rate. Dave Magner looks at how locally made timber lures are keeping up. There’s nothing more exciting than fishing surface lures for Murray cod! Surface works everywhere, and at any time of the day or night. There’s tips and tricks from Cameron (C.J.) Wilson, one of the best exponents of surface techniques, not to mention also being one of Australia’s foremost surface lure makers. Lubin Pfeiffer runs us through two essential techniques and the gear needed to have a successful day in the Tasmanian rivers. Chris Cotterill shows us that weedless lures are much more than just a one trick pony, and that they are a must-have in any serious native angler’s arsenal. Shane Stevens discusses a forgotten trout fishery that is making a big comeback.
With the latest 2021 upgrades, the Quintrex Top Ender range is better than ever. These all-purpose side console open boats come in seven sizes - from 4.3m through to 5.90m. Jeff Webster tested the 540 Top Ender Pro model recently, paired with Mercury’s smooth running 115hp four-stroke outboard.
