Trout, plus a freshwater lobster..

Recommended Posts

This was another of my late season spin sessions in a small tannin stream & it was great to come across a freshwater lobster. They were once plentiful in the rivers/streams here in Tasmania but due to very little catch rate restrictions they became scarce in the rivers/streams. Now they are a protected species that carry a $10,000 fine if taken from a river/stream.

Wow, that's amazing to see one in the wild.

Thanks Kelvin, seeing a freshwater lobster is something that doesn't happen all that often now days and always great when one does come across one. Platypus are also another one that I love to see in a river/stream too, thankfully there still here in reasonable numbers for now.
