On the Move

Lack of significant rains have prompted the sea-run trout to appear a touch earlier than normal in the North of Tasmania, with small amounts of bait not far behind. Yesterday I took a break by the river and managed to lock my keys in the car – this allowed me to painfully watch several sea-run brown trout patrol a shallow shore on the look out for bait. Every now and then a fish would herd a handful of bait up against the shore and mop up the stragglers. It was tough to watch while on the phone to locksmiths and with a rod in the car in case of such emergencies. I did manage to cast to a couple once free but the pent up anticipation caused haste and the haste was not welcomed with open jaws. Soon, they shall be mine.

Got something to say? Bang it in here...
