I don't want to be annoying. But I'd there any way a non Territory resident can get on the program allowing hunting/culling there? I believe a night course is needed plus? Any website with info? Please PM me. Thanks.

I'd make an annual trip up there too.

0 wt is the size of the fly line/ gear used. 00 , 0wt being smallest , 12-14 largest. 12wt is for large saltwater species. 0wt twig water tiny streams. 5-6, large rivers or dams for larger trout.
Murray cod have a slot limit 55-75cm legal to take. Never eaten one so can't comment on what their like to eat. Keep trout occasionally. Ok but prefer Redfin.

BACK COUNTRY NT Hunting
Has a site and pre req a Firearms license
R license course
Hunt with or be a NT resident

Book in 7 days in advance admin fee and day fee.
The hunt with or NT resident is a very good idea as country is hard and conditions later in the year are extreme.
Lots of experience and or Km's are required for success!

Here's a few more pics of last couple of weeks.

Hydros first look at a sambar, 6months. 90m running shot 45/70. Found it easily but unsure! Pics and boned out for easy recovery.

00 and 0 WOW - those are light. Even 1's to 3's are very light rods.
I've never heard of 0's or 00's. A friend made up some 1's and 2's from sage blanks, but my God, they are tiny rods.
Great pictures as ever, Mic.

Nice eating size bara - so, they like bass-baits. Interesting - maybe anything?
I sure like the looks of your .45/70.
I tried my .458 2" loads in a friend's newly put together Siamese Mauser, .45/70. It developed the same ballistics as my .458 2". Good stuff.
Interested? I could PM them to you, Mic.

Good stuff Mick!
I'm very envious of the cod on fly. Still to happen for me.
Had a bit of a go in the Murrumbidgee when my daughter was at Wagga years ago, but no luck.
Caught carp though...

Liked your close shot on the doe: I had a red hind run past me flat-out (from behind!) and bagged her at a similar distance. Discovered later she was bedded just below the crest of the gully I was stalking, assume my scent had swirled around below her. Good camo helps. Love getting close!

We had a few good trips on the cod so decided to try the fly. long arvo for the one take.Pretty excited when he was landed.
Ive also been targeting the carp, lots of fun with great fights. They can be very touchy about presentation of the fly.
8 wt for the cod and 6wt for the carp. Going to use the 10 for future cod fishing.
Here's some more pics, cheers Mick
