A very well known Tasmanian flyfishing guide recently said and I quote verbatim, "Matching the hatch is so yesterday".

In light of this, it's rather difficult to argue against the concept. Don'cha think? :lol

The older I become, the better I used to be.
I recently started on the Gin & Tonic diet - so far, I have lost two days three days four days . . . a full week. :-(

Matching the hatch (a concept from the dim dark pommy days) in my experience is a pack mentality (generally speaking) especially so here in WA as we have very few hatches. The "hatch" could very well be western minnows, trout fry, marron, gilgies. Opportunistic trout (most days) will grab any easy looking meal.
Damsels and Dragonflies are almost always on the menu here especially in the lakes and dams as well.

Good to see others breaking the rules and fishing 'Mitches" River BTW!

Busy setting up my new fly tying desk and waiting for the weather to warm up a bit. No longer a member of WATFAA and no regrets as there is plenty of places to catch Trout - might try a river near Collie if I can avoid Mitch.

Roll on trip #11 to Tasmania hope the Boas is still being kept cold for me
