Newlyweds Tyler and Nicole have a go at fly fishing while on their honeymoon in Tasmania.
Tyler and Nicole both caught on to casting and line control techniques rather quickly. This wild brown trout came to a wet fly.
We were working on the fringes of deep areas to find fish that weren’t really interested in looking up in these bright conditions.
Here we were using a 2 fly rig with a bead-head weighted wet fly on the point. The fish missed one fly and caught the other fly behind the dorsal fin. Fish hooked this way are much harder to lead in the direction you want them to go. The fish has more control than the angler in this case, so you can’t let your guard down.
This fish was in fine shape and took off like a rocket on release. Young adults like this will probably double in weight on Four Springs over the next year.
