The Intermediate Line Podcast
A podcast that shines an entertaining light on the Australian Flyfishing scene
5 days ago
Episode 55 - The Flathead Special
Buckle in for Episode 55 where we take on one of the most accessible fish in Australia the humble Flathead. Listen as we try to fill an hour an a half of talking about a species that could easily be narrowed down to a 30 mins chat hahaha. In all seriousness, the Flathead is a great target for flyfisherman. Experienced guys can target slabs and people transitioning fro m trout to Saltwater can also get runs on the board early on with this species. We both genuinely hope that this show inspires you to look at Flathead as a fly target or to re look at them as a challenge. Big thanks to Captain Super Bad (Alex Roy) as well for letting us use a pic seeing we don't have anything as stunning as this picture.

Episode 54 - Adam Altman
Episode 54- We chat with Adam Altman about monster Murray Cod on fly. I get the feeling that making comparative or competitive statements would embarrass him, but I don’t think anybody had as many big cod on fly as Adam. It was a real pleasure talking with him about his passion. He is not afraid of a donut, and what makes it more creditable is that he is fishing in below freezing conditions at dawn or dusk throwing cast after cast. Now imagine that you hadn’t had a bite in the last 10 trips... yep, that committed. For me it was a real insight into a guy who does get it done. I reckon you guys will enjoy this, thanks for your time Adam!!

Episode 53 - Royce Shanks
Episode 53 - On this episode, we chat to the Luderick Jedi .... Royce Shanks. Royce is a second generation Sith Lord of all things Blackfish. We go over the technical aspects of fly fishing for Blackfish or Luderick. This species is very common along the eastern side of Australia and is considered a bread an butter species by many, they can be caught inside estuaries or on the edge of open water with either very basic gear or you can get as technical as you like. The flies that Royce uses are very interesting and are easily made by any fly tyer which make fly fishing for Luderick a very accessible species for a large part of the population for Australians and New Zealanders.... Join us as we allow the midichlorians of the dark side flow through us while we learn what we can in this, the latest saga of the The Intermediate Line strikes back. We also discuss the latest poses you can do in front of camera so you can look red hot on the flats this summer There is also a Podcast listener fly tying special offer.... its at the end

Episode 4 - Hillbilly Bonefish Chronicles part 1
On this episode we get the good oil on Australia's favorite vermin, the hillbilly bonefish. Our very own Andy Bolch takes the reins and leads us down the path of total Carp domination... sort of. Definitely not the last episode we do on Carp, so just chill if we don't cover the carp virus in this one. Carp are a much loved fly target around Australia, and for that reason we intend to get as many different stories as we can in upcoming episodes from guys and gals that probably also eat them, but are ashamed to admit it.
