Water temperatures early in December were surprisingly still under 20 degrees Celsius and the weed hadn’t really become a major problem. We headed to some clear water anyway, and Charlie hooked up with this splendid rainbow. Using the net Joel helped his dad to get the first fish on board.
Shortly after lunch Joel hooked into a nice brown trout which proceeded to run through the weeds and snags, but with some perseverance Joel still managed to bring the fish to the boat and land it.
