Versatile Kitchen – Fly Fishing on the Goulburn River with Karen Batson

December 7, 2019


I’m Karen Batson, I’m from Cookie, Magic Mountain Saloon and The Toff In Town and I’m here on the Goulburn River to try and catch a trout, and Brenda’s going to help me. Hi, I’m Brenda Galey, I’m the owner of Galey MsGuided Fly Fishing. I’m the first woman-owned and operated fly-fishing business in Australia. The Goulburn River is just two hours north of Melbourne. It comes out of the base of the Eildon Dam, which makes it nice and cold all year round, so it’s perfect for the trout. One of my favourite things about escaping the city is actually to catch my own produce. I’m really attracted to the idea of the water running and seeing the little fish and just the illusiveness, it’s like a game, of “can you catch me”. It’s amazing once you actually can just feel the current running against your legs, and flying the line up the river and hoping that you’ll catch that little fish. That smells fantastic. That trout is delicious, even if I didn’t catch it myself.

    That is a really good color of meat. Beautiful shots of casting too. Sub from me!
