Ep 4 – James Norney: Fly Fishing in Australia – Murray Cod & Trout


Ep 4 - Overview

On today’s episode of The Social Fishing Podcast, I talk to a special guest and good mate of mine who has an addictive passion for fly fishing, James Norney. He is a down to earth bloke who loves to chase any fish that swims using his fly rod.

He has travelled the world chasing a range of species, but it all started down in Victoria chasing Carp and Trout. We get to know a little bit about James’ background before talking about the best setups, fly selection and techniques for Trout. We also touch on fly fishing for Murray Cod!
