    The solution to any problem -- work, love, money, whatever -- is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be. --John Gierach

    Morning Phillip,

    I read in a fly fishing magazine recently that leeries are caught on a clouser pattern trailing a popper. Have anyone tried this at Blakes and perhaps caught something? Furthermore, wind is always a factor... How far do you normally cast for the fish, 30m,20m or stock standard 15m? (if you are blind casting)

    Thanks for the pics.

    Regards

    Hi Barend,

    That technique works at times when the fish are just chasing surface flies. In general the fish come in close depending on tide, water surface (choppy being better), water colour (should have some colour, not crystal clear).

    It helps to cover as much water as possible with your casting, it helps to cast 20m + consistently.

    Thanks Phillip,

    Appreciate the advice. I have caught leeries there on spinner baits, but never on fly - a new challenge...

    We fished Blakes last night from 18:30 - 20:00. We picked up 6 Leeries, all small fish. A black Clouser took 5 fish and hooked 3 more. Water temp was around 20 degrees, high tide was at 19:41 and the wind 15 knots Southerly.

    We fished the section at the slipway.
