Damn Adrian - glad to see this being the end of your season. No doubt it was a monster fish, photos certainly never do things like this justice, but as you alluded to - that lure which looks like a micro HB in its mouth, gives some appreciation as to how big it actually would have been in the flesh....

Re: Sight Fishing Wild Trout. Western Lakes Wilderness.

Great stuff Clint, jealous as, I had to cancel a trip this Feb - good to see you having a ball mate! Aside from the cloud moving in, looks like you didn't get too much wind! That's always been an issue the majority of the times I've been up there.

Re: CRAZY Trout Capture. INSANE!!!!

Nice mate - I've had instances of huge spooked splashes coming out of ankle deep water a few meters ahead of me when walking streams. You know they are ambushing minnows/galaxias?

Great fish and release - good to see you getting out.

Re: Metre Boof from the Goulburn!!!

Awesome to see you get that fish Truedogz - couldnt have gone to a more genuine bloke. Certainly earned and deserved - quite a list of reasons why i see it being the case...the hours you put in, the knowledge you share, what you give back to the system/community and your overall passion. Great stuff...
