Joshua Hutchins, of Aussie Fly Fisher, and TFFJ contributing photographer (check out the 9.2 Cover shot) has a sweet looking film in this years Rise Fly Fishing Film Festival. Goodoo focuses on one of Australia’s native gamefish, the Murray cod, and digs into the perseverance of the species in light of an overfished history and the fun fisheries on the rebound.
From Aussie Fly Fisher: “Murray cod, Australia’s largest exclusively freshwater fish, can eat a full-grown duck in one hit. They are the apex predator of our inland rivers. Join Joshua Hutchins and his crew as they chase down the ultimate prize: the elusive one metre Goodoo on fly.
With hard hits, wild Aussie landscapes, and clear water sight-fishing, this is Murray cod as you’ve never seen them before. Experience the thrill first hand, traveling by four-wheel-drive, helicopter and foot to some of NSW’s best native fisheries. Special thanks to LOOP Tackle, the major sponsor of this film.”
