    CLOUDY BUT FINE

    CLOUDY BUT FINE !!! I felt tentative on the second day of my recent 2 day fishing trip when it was overcast and heavy with cloud. We have just come out of the Yellow Fin Whiting Lure season where we enjoy the best fishing on sunny days. Yellow Fin Whiting Lure fishing is always better in sunshine. I can’t nail any precise reason for it, but I assume it is about the YFW seeing their prey easily and then chasing it down in those conditions. Interesting that we never hear of successful Lure caught YFW at night. However plenty of good YFW are regularly caught at night on bait. On t

  2. With the trout season now closed for three months I went ahead and did my yearly photo books of the rivers/stream & trout that I caught & released throughout the season. Seeing as I took over 2,500 photos during the trout season I had to keep it to two medium size books as well as keeping the cost to a reasonable one. The good thing is that I held of until Snapfish had a 70% off which included extra pages. Here's a few photos from both books, there's also a short 6 minute video musical photo slideshow on my YouTube channel as well, details at the bottom of the photos.. chee

  3. This was my only trip to the Leven River so far this season, it hasn't fished all that well over the past couple of seasons but i thought it was time to give it a go before the season closes. cheers Adrian..

  4. I meant to put this short six minute musical photo slideshow with the photo books a couple of days ago.. I kept it short as not to send the viewers to sleep, the original video runs for 20 minutes.. It was hard working out what photos to use as I had so many, there's probably (& there is) a lot more good photos that I could have added, but one has to stop somewhere don't they. I will have 101 videos "My Rivers & Fish" (when I put 98, 99, 100 & 101 together) that go back a long time, and boy has the rivers/streams changed over those years with the many floods that we've had in that

  5. Thanks Bjorn & Des, it's something I like to do at the end of each trout season, always to look back on when I can't fish the rivers/streams in the near future.. I have 15 seasons of photo books now.. cheers Adrian

    Those Eastern states Dusky Flathead can be prolific at times. All those coastal rivers and lakes along with better water temperatures really suits them fine. Our Southern Blue Spots are a lot tougher gig. You sure are enjoying your move, with all aspects of your fishing. Cheers, Des

    Nice bag of flatties there des. Fished the clyde river recently at Bateman's Bay. Couldn't believe how many flathead where around. Think we landed close to 20. Bit different to back home.

    Leven River wild trout.

    Thanks guys, certainly very lucky down here with the scenery & beautiful rivers/stream to fish. Over the last three months the rivers/streams and even the highland lakes have been over run with Cormorants. The rivers/streams that I fish are now scarce on trout, in fact several small streams have been cleaned out. I spent a couple of hours in the Mersey River yesterday and never spotted a trout at all, this time last year the trout were plentiful in the Mersey. Our trout season closes tomorrow (28th April) for three months, touch wood, hopefully there will be some recovery over the next thr
