Re: The creek out does the river.. (the full report for Texas)

Good stuff as usual Adrian. I notice most of your trips begin fishing mid morning or later....I'm usually on my way home by then and all action is usually shut down. Is it the cooler weather that allows the later starts in Tassie? From the start of the trout season (always the first Saturday in Aug...

Re: The creek out does the river.. (the full report for Texas)

Thanks guys, I do enjoy writing up a report after a trip to a river.. for one that used to hate reading and writing for years it's only the fishing that got me into it when I started to keep a diary of my trips & catches... since I got my first ever computer (that my daughter talked me into) bac...

The creek out does the river.. (the full report for Texas)

The creek out does the river... 13-10-18 After checking the BOM river heights I saw that the Meander River had dropped 50mms since my last disastrous trip there with just the one trout being caught. I thought with it now being lower plus the air and water temp being higher it was worth another visit...

Re: The creek out does the river.. (video)

Thanks guys, always love seeing platypus in the rivers and streams.. It's even better when they swim around your legs while feeding too.. As long as one stands dead still they rarely spot you and will continue to search for a feed on the river/creek bottom.. they're just one of the highlights of tro...

The creek out does the river.. (video)

Spent a few hours chasing trout again today without a lot of success once again. I can't work out why the trout have almost vanished from what is my favorite trout water. The stretch of river I fished today gave up nothing apart from a follow from a small brown and three very light hit & misses ...

Re: Chasing wild trout in tannin waters.. (video)

Thanks Hornet, I have one in the cupboard that was given to me some time ago but have yet to set it up, came with a chest strap as well.. I used to have a couple of small helmet video cameras several years ago that had a remote control with them which made it much easier, gave them to the grand kids...

Chasing wild trout in tannin waters.. (video)

Here's a six minute video I made up using my Canon camera that I use when taking photos while chasing trout in the rivers.. I thought I would try outthe video side of it.. Only problem is I can't take the action shots while casting & catching trout, but it gives one a bit of an idea of what chas...
