Swimming SNAKE & PLENTY Of TROUT

Post by troutandbream.com » Thu Apr 12, 2018 12:10 pm

Caught up with fishing buddy Adrian Webb MEPPSTAS for a hot morning session. We ended up with about 20 fish between us which was great.
Hope you enjoy.
Clint.

Maybe NZ ?

For some reason I thought the place was devoid of the things. I'll scratch Tazzie off places to fish in that case.

Oh they're here alright.. :-D

Tasmania has three species of land snake:
Tiger snake, Notechis scutatus.
Lowland Copperhead, Austrelaps superbus.
White-lipped snake, Drysdalia coronoides.

I came across the Lowland Copperhead snake while on my hands and knees making my way through some thick bush to reach the river. It headed of into the river before turning around and headed back to the rivers edge. Very cold water stopped it from crossing to the other side.. I stood still as it swam back past me before I took the photos of it.. I told Clint to look out for it as he made his way up the river..

Closer look at it..
