After some particularly warm to hot, clear bright days the number of mayfly hatching and spinners returning to lay eggs have dropped off on Four Springs Lake. However there were enough insects showing in small pockets to get a few fish picking off these mayfly.
Pictured is one nice brownie at 48 cm. Part way through the fight the hook became dislodged and caught the adipose fin leading to a long and drawn out dramatic battle.
We enjoyed homemade fish and chips for dinner.
The fly I used was a possum fur emerger.
