It was a rainy day. In fact a day of potentially heavy rains, and Richard asked whether we would find conditions comfortable enough to fish in. We had no problem with that question because we can usually find protected areas to fish and use rain to our advantage.
Which we did, and then it warmed up anyway. Richard was very happy to secure both brown and rainbow trout on the dry fly during the middle of the day.
The rain was a huge relief to those battling the devastating fires in Tasmania these past weeks. As I write this, the Tasmanian Fire Service Alerts website shows there are no ’emergency’ alerts, or even ‘watch and act’ alerts. They are all ‘advice’ or ‘no alert level’. Great news. Our heartfelt thanks to all those fighting the fires.
