    Very nice couple of small stream trout on fly, I'd rate that as better than your regular bag out's in the boat, either way you are a fish catching machine. Just wondering if you noticed any snakes out? I'm usually done with trout in the hills by this time of year due to the bastard poison bitey murder sticks but with the cooler weather we've had was thinking of giving it one more go this weekend.

    Hi wurt, no snakes spotted. But it was a cold day. Funny you say that i was only telling a mate the day after how many snakes i spot summer time in the hills. - leaping off banks. Defently keeps you on your toes.  Walking around the light river in padocks is worse. The browns are huge!

    A decent pair of waders is a must for me. 

  2. Tried a tiny stream around the Lobey area this morning. The wheather was pretty average. only 11 degrees in the hills, wasn't expecting much activity.

    A bow n arrow cast into a murky twig infected hole and this juvenile could not resist. 20191112_103801.jpg.736c710ef36313a2a1ac250d35a0921c.jpg

    Spotted this guy high on a bank, snuck behind him and made a short cast 20191112_113110.jpg.647ca309ce0ab930eb3bda79daf6c739.jpg

    Trecked a few km's, with hardly any sightings.. Overall a quiet morning. When i arrived back in the Barossa it was 18 degrees and the sun was shining..


  3. Look for clean flowing water, that's permanently running. Search for fish. Take your time.  Wade tight creeks. Put in the leg work.  Youl find them!  The journey is half the fun.

    Learn how to bow and arrow cast. 

  4. Sounds great!

    The same method would work as (confit) - to cook it its own fat. 

    Place in deep oven tray. Cover cutlets with oil of choice. Cover tray with foil. 120c - 3 hours. 

    You could flavour the oil with herbs and garlic, or citrus zest on flesh of the fish.

    What gets me is how a 13 year old convinces his parents to travel such a distance ... to fish :D  Brilliant.

    I know right.. 

    It's funny i couldh'v sworn we where 30km from the boat ramp and the only boat out there. Yet in the photo there's 3 boats in the background. 

    Love the deckie too, no t-shirt, bogan az.

  6. Winter is amongst us. Some fishing banter is in order. 

    2005, 13 years old. I convince my parents to go to Broome. And somehow book a charter. $140 per person was the going rate. A great day out, landing 3 sails. 9 for the day. I send my photo into fishing world. Receiving my prize but not returning my only photo.

    2018.  13 years later. I send the skipper a email. "Somewhere in July i said"   He tracks back to the day in his books and sends me the other two fellow fishers details. As i knew one had a camera. A respond from Tasmania.. with full detail ov the day. Soon enough photos arived in the mail. Reunited.
