  • Ep 53 – Copeton Dam Trip: Winter 2021 with Dan & Rhys

We’re BACK! Another episode of The Social Fishing Podcast is here, and this is a special one from a recent trip we did to the iconic Copeton Dam. I headed up north with Dan Webber to map the lake for the SF Membership, and during the week we learnt a lot about this system and decided to sit down and share this with you in another episode of the podcast.

Dan and I talk about out trip, the lessons we learnt, stories and what we caught and our observation of the dam now that it is filling up quickly. Enjoy this episode of the podcast.
