Tough trout season, finally hit the 400 mark...
« on: April 30, 2020, 04:44:37 pm »
Only needing two more trout to reach my 400th for the 2019/20 trout season I finally reached it today with five days to spare. It's been one of my toughest trout seasons for a very long time and at one stage I had doubts about reaching 400 trout before seasons end. Any way I made it today with a few extra fish caught and released as well with a total of thirteen wild browns being caught & released over a three hour spin session in tannin waters. I gave up a couple of months ago on my set target of 600 trout but was still hoping to reach 500 by seasons end.. In the end I knew that was even out of reach so had to settle on trying to hit the 400 mark in which I eventually did. Thankfully the little gold #00 Mepps Aglia did the job on them today, the little one in the photo is very well worn and caught around 80 or so trout, I feel I may retire it at seasons end..
cheers
