10,000th Tasmanian Wild Trout caught.
« on: November 04, 2019, 12:47:00 pm »
Well, I couldn't sit around home today as I wanted to get out there and catch my 10,000th wild Tasmanian trout seeing as I only needed another seven to reach it.. Was a little late hitting the water but was still feeling confident of doing well on the trout.
It turned out to be a great spin session with 14 browns caught & released over three & a half hours in the water. I also hooked and lost seven others on the day, good thing was the 10,000th trout was also the best trout of the day, not a large fish but a well conditioned 485 gram brown. All the trout were caught on the Mepps Bug spinners today, thirteen on a #00 White Miller & one on the Stone Fly models..
When we moved to Tassie back in March 2000 I never gave it a thought of reaching the 10,000 mark with trout at all, that's where keeping a diary & records are good to look back on..

Only just seen this post - have had trouble with internet line the past few days!

Congratulations, Adrian: that's a heck of a milestone, something worth celebrating!  goodjob1  And a damn good day's fishing in its own right, notwithstanding the milestone.

You obviously keep meticulous diaries, and have done for a long while, to be able to identify the exact moment when the 10,000th came to the net.

Thanks Paul, from the day I first went trout fishing after moving here in March 2000 I started my diary & records of my trout fishing trips etc..

 Yes I have have them all in my computer as well as being backed up on USB sticks & discs in case the computer decides to toss in the towel one day..

cheers
