Heading up to Innamincka and Coongie Lakes in about 4 weeks with our kayaks. Would also like to do some fishing but not sure what equip to take.

Sinkers, floats, fly's, line poundage, small rod or hand held ok etc etc.

Thanks,

all we use on the cooper is small rods or handline [ 12lb line is heaps ]and a sinker to match the current if it is running, size 2/0 suicide hooks and away you go. fish are bitting at windorah at the moment. cheers

If the fish are peckish (and should be now), the most basic hook, line and sinker will do. On baits, have seen kids make a haul using sausages - we did ok on freshwater mussels one year - yabbies are best so the locals say (not freely available in those waters though). Worth having a net in for shrimps overnight probably.

20th June to 28th June. 5 days there and 2 days either side travelling to/from Adelaide.

yep, can't wait to sit around a camp fire with some beers and dribble crap about how tough it was in my day!
