Trusted Cod Fly Fishing Guiding
I guess I have been fishing for as long as I remember with my first rod being a bamboo pole, no reel or runners and that's what I caught my first fish on with my late father.
I went through bait fishing, to live baits then to lure fishing and finally started my fly fishing journey in the mid 90's in Victoria...
Experience You Can Trust
I have been tying flies since i started fly fishing moving from trout then to saltwater and finally to cod and yellow-belly flies.
Cod Fly Fishing
There were no flies available to buy when I started fly fishing for cod so what better excuse to tie flies and innovate. The Ozzy Native Flies range have all been trialled and have all caught cod or yellow belly so fish them with confidence as I do.
I prefer to guide during the peak cod bite windows to improve your chances of catching a cod or yella. Dawn and dusk are preferred although you sometimes strike it lucky and have longer bite windows. It's all about increasing the odds of catching our native Murray Cod or Yellow belly.
"I met Ben at Violet Town on the 1st of January. We drove to a camping spot very close to the river. We set up camp, took a rod and went for a walk down to the river. Having never fished for cod before, Ben took the time to show me just how to cast. He was very patient with me as i learnt how to cast to them. He showed me what to look for structure wise. We rested till late afternoon and then started fishing. I caught my cod that evening.
The following morning we went for a fish together and even though he was not guiding me he still took the time to instruct me and help me onto more fish.
I had an awesome time. Ben as a guide is very knowledgable and patient. I would recommend Ben as a guide to anyone any time. You will have such a good time for sure."
