  1. They've done well on several trips last season in the larger rivers such as the Meander, Mersey & Leven rivers, haven't been in the bigger rivers so far this season due to them still running too high.. they will be used on and off again this season too, I've had some success a few times with them.. cheers Adrian
  2. When they're on special.. picked some (10) Atomic Hardz shad 40 & 50 mid divers up some time ago @ $4-00 each in a clearance sale, Have bought a lot of them from different Australian tackle online stores when they have their clearance plus another 20-30% off them as well. cheers Adrian
  3. Oh Boy!! I feel I have way too many lures & a large variety of brands as well.. I'll let the photos tell the story... And these are just the ones I've taken photos of... only use them on the trout.. cheers Adrian
  4. Never used a soft plastic in all my years of trout fishing Tinker, haven't felt the need to.. My sponsor is very big with soft plastics too.. I stick to what I know best and what works for me..(95% of the trout caught have been on the Mepps spinners) going for my 10,000th trout this year since moving to Tassie back in March 2000.. Hope to reach that milestone by mid October if all goes to plan, needed 123 at the start of this trout season .. To date I've caught & released 26 trout.. only 97 to go.. cheers Adrian
  5. I reckon I am a bit older than you Mickyj,, I'm 73 years old mate.. cheers Adrian
  6. That's one beautiful size reddie & in great condition too.. I used to catch some large ones like that many years ago in the lower Torrens River in the Underdale area.. probably full of carp now days.. Finniss River used to hold some decent ones back then too... cheers Adrian
  7. This video clip is from the trip I reported on a few days ago, another beautiful stretch of water in a small tannin stream... cheers Adrian
  8. Hey Lofty I reckon you'd enjoy a stint in one of these small tannin streams to, wait until you see my next fishing adventure to a small tannin stream., from a couple of days ago before the weather turned crappy. cheers Adrian
  9. Thanks guys, I really do love fishing the smaller streams than the large rivers mainly because they're more scenic & very peaceful areas... Plus they're not fished as much as the large rivers & I'm lucky enough to have several land owners that have given me the okay to fish them.. The trout may be smaller than the trout in the bigger rivers but they're still a challenge to catch as they spook much easier that trout in the large rivers due to them being small & less water in them.. peatop as for swimming, don't worry I've taken a few dives in my days of trout fishing rivers & streams.. also drowned a few cameras too. cheers Adrian
  10. Here's a short video from a trip a few days ago to a small tannin stream on private property close to home.. It wasn't a long spin session, one that lasted just on an hour.. Still had a good time in the small stream catching a few wild browns.. cheers Adrian
  11. Thanks peatop, I actually thought there should be a trout or two in this little tannin water as it runs into a large river some 20+ kmds downstream, the river is one of Tasmania's most recognized trout rivers.. that being the "Mersey River." most small streams/creeks that flow into a main river will have trout in them,, that's why I always like to try them out where as most fisho's go to the main rivers due to the easy access.. I don't mind doing the hard yards to try out any small stream.. cheers Adrian
  12. Here's the video clip of the spin session I had when catching my first trout of the new season.. cheers Adrian https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sagaOhZ1I0k&t=13s
  13. Maybe the South Australian Government should take a leaf out the Victorian Gov idea of removing boat ramp & parking fees idea... http://www.fishing-victoria.com/viewtopic.php?f=204&t=23055&sid=cf799fcb2c76f5c079434e9e1d5a249e
  14. Many years ago when I lived at North Haven I used to fish the areas marked on the map in a 12ft tinnie.. Don't know what it's like now days but back then it was very good fishing especially along the inside of the outer break wall (revetment wall as it was called back then) The area outside was great for whiting as well, fishing the white patches in the weed area.. Like I said that was a long time ago though.. cheers Adrian
  15. Spot on Rybak.. That's what I stated earlier, it's time they took a hard look at them & do something about it instead of turning a blind eye to it.... cheers Adrian
