    Tiger snake & a threesome..

    Got a bit of a surprise this morning while crawling through some bush to reach the river.. As I came out of the bush at the rivers edge (still on hands & knees)I came across a Tiger Snake sunning it's self. I think it got the biggest shock as it darted straight into the river and headed for the opposite river bank. Halfway across it turned around and headed back to where I was now standing in shallow water. I just stood still and watched it swim past me before it was back in shallow water next the river bank. I reckon the reason it turned around was because the water temperature was so low it new it was in trouble. Once at the river bank it just laid in the shallows with it's head out of the water while I took a couple of photos before I moved off and started fishing.. Then some three hours later when I was back at the car I came across a threesome in the grass.... cheers Adrian The snake back in the shallows.. The threesome...

    Happy Easter everyone! Who has plans over the long weekend to partake in our fantastic obsession of fishing? Let us know where you're heading and what you're targeting. I'd like to second what Doobie said in his Easter fishing report, take care on the roads! Good luck everyone getting that bag, pb or feed you're after.

    The Easter day trip out with my mate and his Mrs wasn't as successful as I'd dreamed the night before but was a great day to get out on the water. A quick and easy launch and retrieval at O'Sullies straight to my mates spot X. I swear there aren't any fish there, not sure why he swears by it, perhaps I'm a jinx on the trips we go on. We caught a few tommies, squid and leatheries for quite a few hours of fishing. Our baits were being destroyed by pickers, I'm guessing the leatheries, there was one pygmy leather jacket that my mate pulled up and the sounder showed heaps of small fish. Cruising around were some gar but only one hit the deck and was thrown back as it was undersized. Next time I may be able to convince my mate to try a new spot

    Wattle bird feeding..

    Spotted this Wattle bird having a feed on the nectar in one of our Banksia bushes yesterday so grabbed the small fishing camera and took a few pic's from around 30 feet away.. Didn't get the bigger Canon EOS camera out as I thought it would have flown off by the time I got it out and set up for a photo.. cheers Adrian

    If you're not sure if it's a mushroom or a toadstool then leave it be, one way to check the difference is to scratch the top of it and if it goes yellow then it's a toadstool.. also a lot of toadstools are white underneath as well.. Here's a few magic mushrooms..

    Codswallop! They're Fly Agaric not your 'magic mushrooms'. Also common in and around your Pine Mushrooms Yes they are reported to produce hallucinations but are rather toxic. If you're lucky will result in abdominal cramping, vomiting & diarrhea. Unlucky, permanent liver damage. Are 'edible' with correct preparation, apparently delicious too! https://honest-food.net/eating-santas-shroom/ Stick with the standard Blue Meanies for your 'shroom experiences.

    As a kid we'd used to find Field Mushrooms every Autumn, as per Adrian's bag. Very, very tasty indeed. Sadly, somewhere along the line they became far less common and Agaricus Xanthodermus (see below) or 'Yellow Stainer' became very dominant. They look similar to field mushys but are toxic. Easily distinguished by the yellow bruises that develop when damaged. These also smell somewhat like 'hospital disinfectant' too. Im no expert but if you want an easy one to identify - both dead easy to find and identify, you cant go past the Pine Mushroom. Literally anywhere were there is an average stand of mature radiata pines will likely produce these, especially in the hills. I picked a heap from the young fellas school in Crafers (cant find that photo) and could have easily gathered 100+kg at Kuitpo and Mt Crawford forests last season. They look kinda weird as they are realllly orange and ooze orange sap when cut - hence also known as 'Saffron Milkcaps'. Their only downside is their mild flavour, not strong earthy you might expect from Fields or Porchini. My favorite is simple: Quick pan fry in butter and a little garlic, brandy flambe. Served on toasted rye bread with some freshly shaved pecorino

    Snapper15.4kg "abolished" was probably the wrong word to use sorry. I am a supporter of the idea but I just feel that atm everyone is getting ahead of themselves. the details are vague and no time frame has been put in place. I just feel as though all of this carry on is getting peoples hopes up. we need to take a step back and wait for something to happen before jumping the gun. We need to understand that this is a new gov and they have almost no experience in governing. Things will more than likely take longer than anticipated to happen because of this. I also feel that there are more urgent matters for this gov to deal with than this issue.

    Tiger snake & a threesome..

    Snakes don't bother me all that much now as I've come across quite a lot over my trout fishing years, more so when I used to fish the Finniss River in and around the Yundi area.... even stepped on a few as well from time to time too, had a tiger snake strike me on the hip here in Tassie a few years ago. That was my own fault as I was looking at the next stretch of water and not where I was walking...thankfully I always wear waders when trout fishing.. There's always something happening down here Greg..

    40 kph winds here today, I'm going nowhere at the moment... in the morning it's only 4 kph before it turns crappy again for four days of strong winds.. So hopefully will get in a river in the morning.. may try a small tannin stream close to home to see if any trout have moved into it since the 44 mms of rain we had here a few days ago.. It's that time of year when the trout should be starting to head up some of these small streams & creeks providing there's enough water flowing in them.. cheers Adrian

    Tiger snake & a threesome..

    Actually the more I looked at the photo the more I was sure it wasn't a Tiger Snake, I reckon maybe a Lowland Copper Head snake.. still bites too.. Tiger snakes here in Tassie are more often a dark black colour than the mainland Tigers which is why I just thought it was a Tiger..

    Well just as well you didn't crawl onto the snake Adrian, but with it swimming back towards you could have been a little scary also. And that just wasn't her lucky .... or maybe it was

    If that's a ball bearing attached to a magnet, Micky, that lure should cast well. Sliding weights and magnet cast chambers really allow your lure to fly through the air

    Truth? All I'm seeing is a pre-election pamphlet knocked up by the Liberals outlining what they "promise" to do if elected!! Anybody who thinks that a government intends to or in fact can realistically deliver on all election promises is delusional. I, like the rest of this forum will wait and see if this re-structure actually happens, and if so, anything good comes of it.
