salmon still around

Hi all: just a quick report to say I went out this morning, to the upper-mid Huon River, several kms above Judbury, and found it had been swollen with last weekend's rain and just coming down nicely again.  Had fun flinging an array of lures at the water, until finally connected with a solid Atlantic that really got the adrenaline flowing in the fast water until I was eventually able to beach it and give it the priest.  Great condition, I don't think it could have been from the escape before Christmas - I suspect another, later breakout, though nothing has been said publicly.  Anyhow, a very pleasant surprise indeed! The fish scaled 3.5 kilos after gilling and gutting, and has provided several good meals in the freezer for 'ron!
