Embed seems to work fine on a new page. Might be a youtube or the forum software limit per page.... ?  ???



I used to do alot of fluff chucking but definately no expert. Tendonitis in elbow was giving me grief and I cracked it with getting the casting effective with other arm so pretty much I tossed it in went to spin rods. Only ever got a few cod on fly but did get some nice yellow belly, got alot of bass, saratoga and and sooties. Spent some time with Harro, saw him put some big flies into places I'd struggle to throw a rock....

Most used combo for natives for me was a 8wt GLX mega and intermediate line.  Loved surface strikes so would fish this where ever the situation permitted.
If you're hauling bulky flies you might want to go to a 9wt line over an 8wt rod, it might help.

Some nice fish there well done !  :thanks

Going up a line class for the rod is a pretty common thing to do but may require you to slow down your cast a bit to let th eline do its thing.

I wish my first yellas on fly was that big ! Only half that size  :walkplank

In that small window between autumn and winter where the chill starts to set in the big Murray cod begin to feed to stack on their winter conditioning. this gives anglers the perfect opportunity to upsize their pb before the winter shutdown. surface lures are by far the best way to target these voracious hunters during light changes as the chill sets in. Stoked to have gotten two additional meter plus fish this season making the season tally three
