Fly Fishing Australia's Swampy Plains River

February 1, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

Steve Cooper writes about fly fishing in Australia’s Snowy Mountains region in southern New Wales, focusing on the Swampy Plains River. “Banjo Paterson’s folk poetry about this area may have put wild horses and drovers into our national psyche, but these rivers are also part of our fishing folklore, particularly among fly fishers. One of the most popular fly-fishing rivers is the Swampy Plains, and it can be roughly divided into two parts, upper reaches near Geehi and lower reaches near Khancoban.” In the Sunday Herald Sun.
