More trout lost than caught...

Postby meppstas » Fri Dec 28, 2018 10:14 pm

Spent a few hours chasing trout in the river, the trout were few & far between once again though I did hook & lose 8 browns from 12 hookups, best fish of the four caught & released went 520 grams. The 520 gram brown had a bite mark from a Cormorant half way along it's back. They were still hard to find for the distance ( 1.5 kms ) I covered which was what made it so tough, clear water & clear skies didn't help either.

Another brown falls to the Aglia Furia..

Wide open clear water..

The Mepps Aglia Furia was the lure that did the job once again & the Omkuma Ceymar C-10 reel & Okuma LRF-S-602L performed well again too.. Called into a creek on the way home, it was running low and clear, spotted a few small browns but they darted off, they spook so easily in the clear conditions so didn't bother to flick a spinner in the creek. When I arrived back at the car I had a visitor, a red hen came out of the bush and stood by me while I got my out of my fishing waders then wandered off as I hopped in the car to head for home.. We had a nice little chat too, told her it's her lucky day & have a Merry Christmas....
