First trout of the 2019/20 season..
« on: August 13, 2019, 08:30:06 am »
 Finally managed to get back into a small tannin stream for a bit of a practice session in skinny (& 2-3 degrees) water to hone up the trout fishing skills. The water was a dark tannin colour so went for a Mepps #0 Aglia fluo rainbow trout spinner. Good thing was I did have a few hook ups with just the two wild browns being caught.. Was nice to catch my first trout of the 2019/20 season too.. Really wasn't expecting any fish in this tannin water either, going by the land owner there weren't any trout in it, only blackfish to his knowledge.. Always nice to add the first couple of trout to my season tally sheet.. thumbsup1
Gave the Okuma Celilo 6' 1-3kg ULS trout rod & Okuma Helios SX20 spin reel filled with 4lb Super 100 Platypus clear mono a nice workout during the one & a half hour session. The Mepps Aglia fluo spinner did the job too.. Best fish was the second brown, it went 455 grams, both trout were released..
