Did I or didn't I reach the 500th trout for 2018/19 season..

Post by meppstas » Wed Apr 17, 2019 9:43 am

Just needing another 13 trout to reach the 500th trout for the 2018/19 season I hit the small stream again today in the hope of getting it over & done with.. The little Mepps #00 gold Aglia did it's job well again even when the trout were a little fussy from time to time.. It was still very windy again today and I had a large gum tree come crashing down some 30-50 feet behind me early in the spin session..The wind did drop of as the afternoon went on which was good, The river had already dropped a couple of inches and was at the perfect height for spin fishing.. Did I reach the 500 today.. Well, I'm not telling you... you can watch my video to find out, the clue is at the very end of the video.."mushroom clip" I did go home with a feed of field mushrooms at the end of the day and they made for a beautiful cream of mushroom soup too.. .. :-D :-D

Hahahaha the mushroom is the most important.
Well done mate, good photos and video. What camera did you use?
I'm not gonna spoil it, for those who are curious of the 500 mark or not, watch the video!

Thanks guys... :thumbsup:

Seb85, I've just been using my small Canon SX620HS camera for both photos & videos, the camera is small and packs a lot of punch... I do have a helmet camera with remote control but have trouble getting my computer to download the footage so found it easier to use the video on the camera...
