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.

Jassid Joy

Nice warm days late season have given Penstock and other highland waters a sprinkling of jassids (a delicacy on the trout menu!) Neal had his jassid imitation clopped off the glassy surface with gusto by this great condition rainbow.

Neal is particularly fond of river fishing and caught this nice brown trout in a tricky current situation with a small mayfly emerger.
