Luring them in

David fishes some lovely water in the Spanish Pyrenees, generally with lure, and he could land a small lure on a saucer.

This was invaluable in the tough conditions, as major rains were bringing up water levels, and within an hour of our first fish the water had turned to chocolate. Fortunately northern Tasmania is spoiled with numerous river and tributary options. We caught fish in a number of waters, and hooked up with a solid Atlantic salmon at the end of the day on Brumbys Creek.

Australian Salmon on Fly

Visiting American outdoors journalist, Dale Spartas, while in Melbourne for his daughter’s wedding, took the opportunity to enjoy a Tasmanian angling experience.

After heavy rains, dirty water, and with most trout fisheries closed, we decided to spend a couple of hours on the Tamar River.

Between Ray, Dale and myself we landed more than 40 Australian Salmon on fly.
