Example text

Heck, there were even carp in the backwaters. The dry fly stopped working so I tied on a size 10 San Juan Worm and nymphed from the raft. Will had never seen anything like the Worm. Neither had the fish, which ignored it altogether. " I turned too slowly, glimpsing brown fur that could have belonged to a muskrat for all I knew. The duck-billed platypus is as uniquely Australian as the koala bear, the Tasmanian devil, and the kangaroo. Every North American kid learns about the platypus in schoola web-footed, primitive mammal that lays eggs.

Grabbing my fly rod, I'd wander down to the river to fish for the small hatchery-raised rainbow trout while the last of the golfers swung away in the purple twilight.

Will said that like the alpine rivers in New Zealand, there really isn't much point in nymphing blindly in Australian headwaters because the fish population doesn't warrant it. Each pool and run holds a couple of wild trout and that's it. Later on in my trip, I'd find those alpine rivers in New Zealand, with their characteristically light or gray-colored bottoms, provided easier sight fishing than the Tumut with its hazel riverbed.
