Low Water Workshops

Join a small group of 4-8  fly fishers for a two-day workshop designed to assist you in targeting fish Goulburn River trout at lower water levels.

The workshop commences at 9.30am on a Saturday (see scheduled dates below) in  Alexandra (less than two hours drive from Melbourne CBD and Melbourne Airport), and concludes at 5.00pm the following afternoon. We provide the flies, tea/coffee/water, lunch and all instruction. All you need to bring is your rod and waders, appropriate clothing for the weather, a hat and pair of sunglasses.

The first morning of the workshop will begin by delving into gear selection and set-up, followed by some casting work, and a discussion of trout behavior / insects hatches / fly selection at these times of year when the river is low.

In the afternoon we will head out onto the water in search of fish. A big emphasis will be placed on reading the water, fly selection, and carefully stalking any rising fish.

Day two will begin with a brief recap back at base, after after which most of the day will be spent on the river.

This workshop is suitable for anyone wishing to learn more about the Goulburn River at lower levels. Those that have completed our beginner workshop would find particularly worthwhile as it expands upon what is learned on this course.
