Quamby Fly Fishers Club were delighted to have Deryk Denis and Graydon Haines from North-West Fly Fishers Club as guest speaker at our February meeting. Graydon opened the evening with an entertaining talk about frog feeding trout and his methods on how to catch them. After the talk Graydon then showed the members how to tie his favourite fly that he uses on frog feeders the Mrs Simpson Fly.

Deryk then gave a presentation on white bait feeders. He began with telling us how the white bait behave when present within the rivers. He then proceeded to talk about where the trout will sit in pursuit of feeding on the white bait and how we are able to attempt catch them.


Below is a table compiled by Graydon Haines on different feeds that are availiable to trout throughout the season and what he would use to imitate these food sources.

The evening was then wrapped up with a lengthy debate about whether trout smell or only use eye sight when feeding.


Do trout smell before eating? We will leave that up to the scientists.

Didymo is a freshwater algae that can cause massive algal blooms on the beds of streams, rivers and occasionally lake edges where wave action exists. Didymo has recently been identified in the South Island of New Zealand and consequently the potential for translocation to Tasmania is vastly increased. Didymo can adversely affect freshwater fish, plant and invertebrate species by reducing the number of suitable habitats available to these species.


The algae attaches to the streambed by stalks. These stalks can form a thick brown mat that smothers rocks, submerged plants and other aquatic materials. Established mats form flowing streamers that can turn white at their ends and look similar to brown tissue paper. Although the algae appear slimy, it feels like wet tissue paper.


Didymo is made up of diatom cells that cannot be seen with the naked eye until large colonies form. It takes only ONE of these cells to survive and be transported to other water bodies for Didymo to spread. Didymo cells thrive in freshwater and as such, the cleaning of equipment in freshwater helps to keep them alive.

In 1864, a ship about to depart England for Australia was asked to take on board a small gift: several hundred brown trout eggs. Those eggs not only survived the 91-day trip to New Norfolk in Tasmania, they later hatched and thrived in Derwent Valley ponds.
