Trevor and Vorn planned their trip to coincide with usual stable river heights and focus on their river fishing skills and techniques.
The weather gods didn’t get the memo!
With rivers once again in flood, and rising, the best we could do was to focus on wild browns moving up with the flood waters into side waters and lagoons. That was the first day, which also included some torrential rain. We did find a few swirlers and tails.
The first two photos are from the second and third days where we reverted to loch style dry fly techniques on still waters, and here are two hefty browns that came to emerger dry flies very close to the shorelines.
In between casting to trout, Vorn cast her eye and camera, capturing these delightful images of birds and wildlife spotted throughout their three days with Gary.
