The story of Jimmy Barwick is next level! This is an epic chat as we learn who Jimmy is and the crazy adventure he has been on over the past two decades. He has travelled a fair portion of the world, lived overseas working and spent a massive part of his life living on the water.
Currently working as a fly guide on the Tumut River in NSW, and also working in retail. He has seen and done it all, and in the first half of this episode we get an insight into his amazing life journey.
The second half of this episode Jimmy shares his last 12 months of chasing Murray Cod. Having never chased them ever before, to learning about this incredibly intelligent species, to catching his first (and now multiple) metre Murray Cod on the fly. We discuss techniques and approach for using the fly, and lessons Jimmy has learnt along the way. This is a big episode and one you’ll want to listen to.
