Peter was on a mission to catch his first wild brown trout on a fly using his own rod and gear.
Bright sunny day, with a number of mayfly spinner along the shorelines.
Tim was very happy with this brown trout from one of our low altitude lakes in October. The first of the mayfly hatches and some very good brown trout on the chomp. Now, into December, the hatches are occurring at the higher altitudes.
River action has been very good, and in the last few days, was getting tough on some rivers due to temperature. Thank goodness for a few days of cooling rains.
The South Esk River fish showed no real interest in grasshoppers on this day in early April. But we did manage to find a few that were willing to sip down small mayfly emergers and mayfly spinner in the calmer areas.
Mark is a regular visitor with us over the years, starting out as a beginner fly fisher. He’s been building his skills around Tasmanian wild trout, along with some other trips, and I was rapt when he sent me this photo a week or so later of a king fish he had proudly landed just outside the Sydney Harbour Heads.
