fire and floods

IT was a bitter sweet end to Australia’s bushfire crisis. No sooner were the flames extinguished, the floods began, and it wasn’t long before we started hearing reports of major fish kills. Bushfire devastated areas were most susceptible, with ash and topsoil washed into the river systems creating serious problems for native fish. It was widespread from the South and North Coasts of NSW to inland waterways and impoundments. Some of the worst fish kills happened west of the Great Dividing Range with similar floods occurring. The difference was many of these western rivers weren’t fire affected. There was no ash. So what or who was to blame? The problems in our rivers, particularly the Murray Darling, run much deeper. And while droughts, fire and pouring rain are natural, this problem is…

the great ones

For those of us who fish temperate waters, mulloway are a prize catch usually made at great effort. Night is the most productive period to fish and patience is a must.

Reportedly, “mulloway” is an indigenous word meaning “the greatest ones”, and it fits perfectly. Whilst, “jewfish” is a shorter version of "jewelfish" which originated in days past when the oversized ear bones (otoliths) of mulloway were…

a note from the publisher

“I pledge to visit a fire affected town with my Empty Esky”. This timely media campaign really has struck a chord with Australians and the wider world over the past few harrowing months. The “Bring an Empty Esky” campaign is aimed at supporting the fire-impacted communities that need our collective help. Anglers are such steadfast benefactors to Australians in need; as a community we do great things for so many worthy causes and have so for a long time. As one of the “Bring an Esky” founders, Eleanor Ballieu said: “We are encouraging everyone to grab an empty esky, do a road or sea trip, and head into an area impacted by the bushfires when it’s safe to do so, and really shock the locals. Fill that esky with everything local –…

“get hooked” on the future of fishing!

INTRODUCING the next generation to the fishing lifestyle is one of the key goals of NSW DPI’s “Get Hooked … It’s Fun to Fish” education program.
