Spinners on Penstock Lagoon

Peter's brown troutStewart's brown troutFather and son team Peter and Stewart Rasmussen were keen to improve their fly fishing knowledge and skill level.

We spent the day at Penstock Lagoon in Tasmania’s highlands. There were a few jassids around but the trout were showing more interest in the adult mayfly; the spinner.

In light wind conditions, stealth was needed to get close enough to these fish for the cast and good presentation was crucial.

Peter and Stewart’s presentations were spot on, and here is their fine brace of wild brown trout.
