Brown trout can be on or off most times of the season especially if the water is below 6 degrees or above 21 degrees.. Early season the gold. silve...

Re: My 2018/19 Trout season Report..

WOW and wow Adrian. Very impressive on all levels. Very interesting to see the "learning curve" in the first few years, for both learning on the angling side and the learning about the rivers too. The Mersey is my favourite river, for an un-explainable reason but it does have a soft spot for me. Sa...

Re: My 2018/19 Trout season Report..

That is extremely impressive record keeping. I have always intended on doing it but have lacked the discipline. Thanks guys,, Gus you should do it, down the track you can look back on it and check out places you may have forgotten about.. Once you get started I'm sure you'll enjoy it.. :thumbsup: Y...

Re: My 2018/19 Trout season Report..

Thanks guys.. Lx, keeping a diary and stats is something I've always done in all my years of fishing, even when I did a lot of salt water fishing when we lived in Sth Aust I kept stats on the fishing.. During the trout season I quite often go through the last season and earlier seasons diaries to se...

Re: Last two trips of the 2018/19 trout season..(short version)

Top report and pics as always Adrian! Those trout look like they are in great condition and that 525g one is a beauty. Your final tally for his season might have been down compared to last season but who can say that they have caught 573 trout in a season??? I don’t know of anyone except you :) Enj...
