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.
