Mid-week Munter

There’s no better way to unwind after a days work, than to head to a creek for some fly fishing. Such was the case during the week with Bryan, as we headed to a remote creek in the North West.

Almost as soon as we arrived I spotted a nice looking fish in the shallows. I tucked myself behind a tree stump and got into position. My back cast had to split the sticks but success was achieved on the second cast, which saw a little Royal Wulff land ahead of the fish. Ever so slowly, the fish opened its jaws and sipped… Fish on!! I thought the fish would go buck-wild on the two weight but it was a bit slabby and gave in quickly. It would have been a sensational fish if in prime condition.

Here’s a little video clip that Bryan took during the ‘battle’.

We continued on and landed a few more nice browns and small rainbows. We spooked some nice fish that were rippers for water of this size.

Cracking way to end the day!
